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 our highest standards, both optically and mechanically.

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

New to 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.
