Meade 130mm ED TRIPLET APO Refractor Telescope (0507-00-05)

The Meade 130mm ED Triplet APO Refractor Telescope is a true triplet apochromatic 910mm f/7 refractor that delivers crisp wide-field astro-imaging and observing. Featuring Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and a 5" aperture, the 130mm ED Triplet APO is an excellent choice for astrophotography or celestial viewing. It is enhanced with picture-perfect, pinpoint star images and a near absence of color fringing. The 3" Crayford Dual Speed Focuser ensures smooth and repeatable focusing with zero image shift. A fully-extendable dew shield is integrated into the aluminum optical tube.

Of all the telescope designs available today, the apochromatic refractor is the architecture that supplies the greatest contrast and resolution. It won't provide the light gathering capacity per dollar of Dobsonians or Newtonian reflectors nor the portability per aperture of Schmidt-Cassegrains. They do provide the most enviable views, with the darkest of background skies, the sharpest widest fields and the highest contrasts that are virtually free of chromatic aberration.


Fast Focal Ratio
f/7 fast focal ratio for wide field astrophotography
Fully-Extendable Dew Shield
Built into the telescope, protecting it from dew build up and stray light
8x50 mm with cross-hair reticle assists the finding and centering of objects
2" Diagonal
Enhanced, 99% reflectivity, slip-fit, 2" diagonal accepts a universe of eyepieces
Premium ED Glass
FK61 Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass is used to extend color correction, brightness, and clarity
Cradle Rings and Mounting Bracket
Provides mounting options for a wide variety of Meade and non-Meade German Equatorial Mounts and most photo tripods
Fully Multicoated Lenses
Multiple layers on all air to glass surfaces ensures maximum light transmission for a brighter, higher-contrasted image
True ED Apochromatic Triplet
A true triplet optical design engineered with 3 air-spaced objective elements to equalize the focal points of the red, green and blue light wave lengths. This nearly eliminates any color aberration or fringing around objects
Dual Speed Crayford Focuser
Zero image-shift, dual speed 10:1 control, dispenses smooth and repeatable focusing with no image shift. A fine focus for super sharp visuals and images. Machined aluminum affords strength and durability while the 3" diameter allows a wide range of accessories
