Meade Series 5000 ED APO Refractor
very good scope for the money.have to adjust focuser for feel.was a little stiff right out of the box.have to use well corrected eyepiecs.a little focal plane curve,to be expected due to triplet design.need your own mount,cg5 is good if not heavy.but if you want to use it up to 200 power you will need a steady mount.very little false color at all.seeing cond. contribute,humidity a little. if your super critical of refractors then get a tak,tmb ap. but for 649. its great. i have owned a lot of different telescopes lomo mn 102 , discovery 8 f7, c102, 2-c4rs, i will never sell it. i think this is a true apo., but i don't know if it would satisfy the harshest critics on cloudynights refractor forum. after all they sure like beat up on that guy from cal. pretty good. don't analyze to much, just buy one and enjoy the sky at night. it provides low power to high power very well. i could have gone on and on about contrast ,etc. etc. but i think its great considering what's availible and cost. thats all i have to say about that.
