Meade's Series 6000 70mm Astrograph is a 70mm aperture, Quadruplet Apochromatic (APO) Refractor with 350mm (f/5) Focal Length. This extra-low dispersion (ED) Quadruplet APO offers fully multi-coated optics for crisp, clear images. The fully illuminated image circle is 42mm and will cover a 35mm full frame sensor. Includes adapters for 48mm and 42mm standardized T-thread. Safely secure and transport your APO with the included hard aluminum hard carry case. Assembled product weight: 4.5 lbs. Assembled product dimensions: 12.25" x 4.5" x 5.5".

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 Meade's highest standards, both optically and mechanically.

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

Upgraded in 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.

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.

The Series 6000 Apochromatic Refractors will fill the needs of the most discerning astronomer. For crisp wide-field observing and imaging, nothing can beat a true four-element Apochromatic Refractor (APO). Meade Series 6000 ED APO Triplets are among the finest available optically at any price.

NOTE: This refractor is an astrograph built for photographic purposes and cannot be used visually.
