Refractors are very popular among both amateur and professional astronomers. Such telescopes are great for observing Solar System objects as well as for terrestrial viewing. Compared to reflectors, refracting telescopes are a lot easier to maintain and adjust. Nothing, though, can be one hundred percent perfect, and refracting optical design is no exception. Refracting telescopes are known to suffer from an effect known as chromatic aberration. To put it simply, the refracting optical system adds a rainbow halo around the image and distorts image colors. Luckily, premium refractor telescopes almost completely remove aberrations. Such expensive refractor telescopes are usually apochromats, meaning their objective lenses consist of three lenses. This is not the only improvement made to refractors in order to achieve better image quality. All optical elements of premium refractors are made of specially selected ED glass with high refractive indices; usually different types of glass are combined and lenses additionally have more sophisticated shapes. Such an improved refractor becomes a perfect instrument for visual observations and, more importantly, for astrophotography – allowing you to capture the most stunning views in bright natural colors.
