INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING!
Never use a Meade® Telescope to look at the Sun! Looking
at or near the Sun will cause instant and irreversible damage
to your eye. Eye damage is often painless, so there is no
warning to the observer that damage has occurred until it is
too late. Do not point the telescope or its finder at or near
the Sun. Do not look through the telescope or its finder as
it is moving. Children should always have adult supervision
while observing.
Introduction:
The Meade Series 6000 ED APO are true three-element
apochromatic refractors that are virtually free of chromatic
aberration (color fringing), providing pinpoint star images.
A Series 6000 ED APO is the ideal companion for your
larger Advanced Coma-Free Cassegrain, or Newtonian
scope. Mounted piggyback to the larger telescope, a
Series 6000 ED APO is the ideal wide-field photography
scope when guided by the primary instrument and doubles
as a guide scope for the primary telescope. It also makes
an ideal lightweight and portable scope for flawless images
day or night.
Features:
• FAST FOCAL RATIO: At f/6 (80mm), f/7 (115mm) and f/7
(130mm), the focal ratio of these scopes is ideal for wide
field astrophotography.
• PREMIUM ED GLASS: Meade uses premium Extremely
Low Dispersion glass. This specialized glass is crafted to
achieve a very small change in refractive index across the
entire visual light spectrum. This makes the Series 6000
ED APO the perfect choice for a fast, high performance
optical design.
• FULLY MULTI-COATED LENSES: Meade broadband
fully multicoated lenses ensure the highest possible light
transmission maximizing image brightness in minimum
exposure time, therefore allowing more images to be taken
in an evening.
• TRUE APOCHROMATIC TRIPLET: A true triplet optical
design guarantees the textbook color correction you expect
from a premium APO.
(Features Contued)
• DEW SHIELD/SUN SHADE: An essential accessory built
in to the design for your convenience.
• MACHINED ALUMINUM DUAL SPEED RACK AND
PINION FOCUSER: Critical for fine photography this
superior focuser gives the operator the ability to smoothly
and accurately achieve perfect focus. Fine and super
fine focusing speeds of 10:1 reduction. Accepts standard
48mm threaded accessories.
• PRECISION, EASY TO READ FOCUS SCALE ON FOCUSER
DRAW TUBE: Easily repeat critical focus points.
• CRADLE RINGS AND MOUNTING BRACKET: Allows mounting
on a wide variety of Meade and non-Meade German Equatorial
Mounts. Mounting bolts (not included) are standard M6x1.0
• Dedicated optional photographic focal reducer/field flatteners.
Using the Focuser Assembly:

locking ring to tighten the diagonal in place. To focus the
telescope, turn the fine focuser wheels in or out.
If you have a 2 inch eyepiece, remove the 1.25” eyepiece
holder from the diagonal assembly by loosening the holder
thumbscrew. Slide the 2 inch eyepiece into the holder and
tighten with the eyepiece thumb screw.
