USED Meade Model 395 90mm (3.5\") Achromatic Refractor Telescope

Condition: In fair to good condition, with some minor useage-induced scrapes, mostly on the mount and tripod. We've included a battery-powered motor drive, for hands-free viewing; easily disengaged if desired. Includes a 25mm focal length eyepiece. We just added a used but excellent, multi-coated prism diagonal, hence the $15.00 price increase--well worth it!

Does not include original shipping carton.

The Meade Model 395 refractor is a proven, basic design that offers a fairly sizeable 90mm aperture to deliver satisfying planetary and lunar views, as well as open up the deep sky. The lack of a central obstruction makes for better performance than same-aperture Maksutovs, for example.


  • Good color correction for an achromat, due to the f/11 focal ratio
  • Motorized tracking (3X AA batteries)
  • Lightweight, and well manageable when disassembled
