The price for high-quality refractors has fallen dramatically in recent years, and you can now purchase a 4-to-5-inch extra-low dispersion (ED) apochromatic (APO) telescope that's almost entirely free of the false color that plagues achromats for a fraction of the cost commonly seen a decade ago.
Jurasevich, Mount Wilson Observatory, discovered and reported that H-alpha CCD images taken on 2007 June 19.22 and 2008 July 6.17 UT, using an Astro-Physics 160EDF apochromatic refractor + SBIG STL-11000M CCD camera + 6nm Tru-Balance H-alpha filter, reveal a near-spherical shell of gas, located within a faint H II region near NGC 6888, that was apparently not noticed (or published) previously due to the density of stars and gas in that area of Cygnus.
In fact, some highly prized telescopes such as apochromatic refractors are available only as optical tubes, and similarly, a number of the best mounts can be had only as separate items.
Many of the larger, more expensive spotting scopes can be purchased with what is often called ED glass or low dispersion lenses, achromatic or apochromatic lenses, crown and flint lenses, or some rendition of calcium fluorite crystal, etc.
As a tool for objective inspection of surface defects, the system consists of a solid temperature-resistant and shock-resistant cabinet, an integrated B&W CCD camera, and high-end apochromatic lenses.
The first author of this article is foremost an astrophotographer, so he took along a lot of photographic equipment: an HEQ-5 mount, two DSLR cameras, a bunch of lenses, and an 80-mm apochromatic (APO) telescope.
Apochromatic refractors with short focal ratios offer unparalleled wide-field performance, a characteristic valued highly by many deep-sky observers and astrophotographers.
