Meade Series 6000 80mm ED Triplet APO Refractor #0306-00-05. For crisp wide field observing and imaging, nothing can beat a true triple-element Apochromatic Refractor (APO). Meade Series 6000 ED APO Triplets are among the finest available optically at any price.
This impressive 80mm (3.1”) f/6 refractor has a focal length of 480mm, making it ideal for wide field observing and advanced astrophotography.
