Meade 277 CL bargain
Posted 02 August 2014 - 03:42 AM
The Meade 277 has been discussed previously on CN, so I'll just comment that performance for a small, fast achromat and the built quality are excellent. I recently put the scope through some paces viewing the Moon and Saturn. Views with the included Meade MA 25mm and Meade Ortho 18mm, along with a 2x barlow, were sharp. Saturn looked beautiful in an ES 4.7mm at 64x. Chromatic aberration is negligible.
Here are previous Meade 277 threads that I found:

Yep, I still have my old 277 and the subject of the old archived thread. It stays in my camper and comes out on non-observing outings when the moon tends to be fatter. Those also just so happen to be the times when it performs best!
enjoy it! I have mine...
