    Default Meade Series 5000 ED Triplet



    I have been out of observing for a while, and was looking for another
    small grab-and-go scope to get me back outside at night. I just saw
    this 80/480mm refractor listed on Astronomics website. Anyone know
    anything about this new scope, whether there'll be larger ones along
    the same line...?
    I did remember that their eyepieces were redesigned/restyled a while
    back and were being called the 5000 Series, and that they stopped
    making the ED doublets.

    The 80mm are available now. I don't think the 127mm are available yet.

    Hi:

    See http://cloudynights.com/item.php?item_id=1619

    for a good review of this Meade import.

    Very similar scopes are available from William Optics _right now_.
