Looking to buy a good telescope?
Many people are taking an active interest in the fascinating subject of astronomy. Both amateur and serious astronomers are studying the heavens and finding out more about the planets, stars and constellations. Perhaps you are looking to buy a telescope yourself?
There is so much to see up there, from the mind-boggling Milky Way to the planets we can see in our solar system like mars and Venus, through to the eclipses of the moon and the movements of the constellations. Meteorite showers are another wonder to be seen in the starry skies. Who doesn't marvel at the incredible wonder of the heavens above?

The history of Meade Telescopes
Meade optical instruments
Meade Instruments began life back in 1972. At first it was only a small company that mainly manufactured refracting telescopes and catered for the amateur astronomer. However, after running for only 15 years, Meade became recognised as one of the world’s leading telescope manufacturers and was now supplying professional astronomers as well. By 1995, the company Meade Instruments had sold more telescopes than any of its rival firms had done.
Meade’s success was due to a large part by their innovative approach and willingness to make use of new and cutting-edge technology. The company lead the way by introducing the Schmidt-Cassegrains telescope, for the first time on a commercial basis. This instrument made use of an integrated electronic drive system.
Another key to success for Meade Instruments was the quality and reliability of all the products and services the company offered. Word soon was spread that this was a manufacturer of instruments for astronomers that could be trusted.
By the year of 1999, Meade had become the first manufacturer of telescopes to introduce intermediate-level instruments that offered automatic slewing, as well as the GO TO functionality. Today Meade Instruments make a large range that also includes Solar Telescopes, Microscopes, Optics and Binoculars.
