About this item

The Meade Series 6000 80mm refractor uses a premium FPL-53 ED glass element and state-of-the-art optical multicoatings in its apochromatic air-spaced triplet optics. The result is images that are essentially free of the annoying halo of unfocused violet light (chromatic aberration) that mars the view of bright stars and solar system objects in lesser scopes, despite the scope's relatively large aperture and even at very high magnifications.

The Meade 80mm is an excellent astrograph for wide field imaging, as well as crisp solar system imaging. It is compact enough to be your year-round travel scope or your grab-and-go scope for spur of the moment backyard observing.
