Picked this up today from agena-logo-text_300x100.png

Meade Series 6000 70mm ED Astrograph Quadruplet Apo Refractor Telescope OTA for my ASI6200MM Pro Camera.
Took the only one they got in stock today, took about 2 Months for them to have one in stock.
Going to compare it to the Radian Raptor 61 and from there find what works best with this Camera.

If not anyone know what Automatic Focuser will work?
