Meade Series 6000 115mm APO Triplet Refractor

The Series 6000 Apochromatic Refractors are some of the best crafted refractors on the market. Each refractor is individually constructed and tested to ensure that they meet our highest standards, both optically and mechanically. The Series 6000 Apochromatic Refractors will fill the need of the most discerning astronomer. 

For crisp wide-field observing and imaging, nothing can beat a true three-element Apochromatic Refractor (APO). Meade Series 6000 ED APO Triplets are among the finest available optically at any price.

3 Element Optical Design 

These telescopes were built with the observer and imager in mind.  With the three element optical design using the highest grade extra-low dispersion optical glass, false color is virtually eliminated, yielding astonishing color correction, contrast, and sharpness.

2.5” Dual-Speed Rack-and-Pinion Focuser

New to the Series 6000 Triplets APOs is the proprietary 2.5” dual-speed rack-and-pinion focuser. The focuser comes with a 10:1 fine focus knob for precise focusing.  It includes millimeter markings on the drawtube to assist with focusing accuracy and is also rotatable which allows for easy framing of the photographed object.

New for this focuser is the 2” self-center locking ring that allows diagonals or cameras to be well centered to the optical train every time the locking ring is engaged.

0.8x Focal Reducer/Field Flattener

In addition to the deluxe focuser the Series 6000 Apochromatic Refracting Telescopes now have an optional 0.8x Focal Reducer/Field Flattener for photographic purposes. For wide field images the 2” focal reducer/flattener will reduce the 115mm refractor from f/7 to f/5.5.  

The new reducer will optically flatten the images yielding pin-point stars to the edge of your photographic frame.
