This has been my Imaging scope for the last year.
I have been so impressed with it that I'm selling this scope to get the Series 6000 130mm f/7
The scope is in fantastic condition with the optics being crisp and clear.
Very Minor amounts of dust on the front of the lens
This scope is so popular that it is currently out of stock just about anywhere.

Here is a little more info about this scope.
When Meade receives a shipment of them they bench test the optics.
The one's that don't meet there spec's are sent back.How do I know this, well I have a friend that works for Meade. That's all I can say

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.
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.
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
Standard equipment also includes a fully extendable dew shield,
mounting rings, a Vixen-style dovetail, and an aluminum hard carry case
to protect your investment when not in use.
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 f/7 115mm and 130mm refractors to
The new reducer will optically flatten the images yielding
pin-point stars to the edge of your photographic frame.
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.
