Meade Telescope

Meade telescope into hi-res Schmidt astro-camera

Redfield scopes have been in the foray for almost close to a century now. This in itself speaks a lot about the company as staying in the main industry indicates significantly about the standards and quality of any product. The rifles of this company were produced in Colorado initially but it was a man called Blount who finally gained monopoly over the company. The line was experiencing a brief period of discontinuation but recovered soon after.

Though Redfield has had a long run in the industry and was one of the pioneers in the rifle industry, it was increasingly becoming difficult for the company to keep pace with the rest of the companies in the global market. Companies such as Leupold were making things really difficult for this company. The only option left at that point of time was to take Redfield scopes away from the main market and do a reassessment of the areas and aspects that were proving to be obstacles in its direction of garnering worldwide popularity. This was implemented within a short span of time.

It was the magical touch of an organization called Meade, which took over the company, and ultimately made it feature in the big league at that point of time. It was this organization which truly gave the company its final shape. The company was always appreciated for the telescopes it made and for its high quality and standard. It was well justified that a telescope manufacturing company should enter into the field of making rifles. The primary hub of Redfield is now located at Georgia where most of the significant Scopes are created and manufactured. The key rifles comprise of Golden Five Star, the Tracker, the Illuminator and the Widefield.

Though they are projected as something nascent and innovative, these scopes do not really have anything unique or exclusive about them. The Widefield scope had already reached the production stage when this majestic company found itself in a situation of acute crisis. The scope has an oval and objective lens, which enables you to get the scope lower on the rifle and provide you with a broader and much wider view point compared to standard views. This is a big advantage.

The pattern or format may appear to be a little unusual and queer but does not negate the fact that the scopes have been designed to complete perfection. It is very beneficial during sessions of close hunting. This is because the images are very clear and prominent. Widefield products are usually 30% bigger in size compared to ordinary scopes. Redfield however has maintained a high quality of the products which it has manufactured for so many decades. It still continues to build scopes that can endure and last even in disturbed weather conditions. The value of the riflescopes is still very high and continues to enjoy its long stint in the industry.

It is Meade which is now pulling the strings for the company's prosperity. It is therefore not possible for Redfield to appreciate the other fellow models. The best part of this company is that it offers a lifetime guarantee on all the rifles manufactured under the guidelines of the Meade industry. This is a primary reason for its worldwide popularity and success.
