The Series 6000 80 mm ED Triplet APO Refractor Telescope from Meade is a true triplet apochromatic 480mm f/6 refractor that delivers crisp wide-field astro-imaging and observing. Featuring Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and a 3" aperture, the 80mm ED Triplet APO is an excellent choice for astrophotography or celestial viewing. It is enhanced with picture-perfect, pinpoint star images and a near absence of color fringing. The 2" Crayford Dual Speed Focuser ensures smooth and repeatable focusing with zero image shift. A fully-extendable dew shield is integrated into the aluminum optical tube.

Of all the telescope designs available today, the apochromatic refractor is the architecture that supplies the greatest contrast and resolution. It won't provide the light gathering capacity per dollar of Dobsonians or Newtonian reflectors nor the portability per aperture of Schmidt-Cassegrains. They do provide the most enviable views, with the darkest of background skys, the sharpest widest fields and the highest contrasts that are virtually free of chromatic aberration.
