Meade 6" Schmidt-Newtonian Telescope. This is a vintage telescope that is in perfect condition, only exception is the outer coating on the corrector plate shows age related deterioration, (see photos), other than that its all pristine. I bought this beautiful instrument several years ago from a contractor that discovered it, (still in the original boxes), while demolishing an old house in Sacramento. It looks brand new, no scratches or dings at all, and appears to be unused. I have only used it a couple of times, the only reason I’m selling it, is my vision is not what it was when I was younger.
Meade produced the Schmidt-Newtonians 6-inch f/5 model MTS (Modular Telescope System) with a mount that is stable for astrophotography and with the RA axis drive makes it a great way to get into astrophotography without the huge expense.
Specifications: 6" Schmidt-Newtonian f5, with Multi-Coated Optics, Fork Mounted Pier Column, with LX3 Drive System, 2.00" Helical Focr, 1.25" Adapter. Clear Aperture 152mm, Focal length 762mm, f/5, resolution .75 arc seconds, approx. visual mag limit 13.4, approx. photo image limit 16.0, Imaging scale 1.90 degrees per inch, diagonal size 1.83", obstruction 9.3%, weighs about 50 pounds.
