A refracting telescope that uses at least three quality lenses to achieve an image that's almost completely free from false colour. This type of lens has better correction of chromatic and spherical aberration than more common and cheaper achromatic lenses. It's brings red, green and blue light to the focus at the same point. Expensive high-end refractors use apochromatic lenses.
