AIR-SPACED TWO-ELEMENT ACHROMATIC REFRACTORSAn ordinary single lens brings different wavelengths of light to different focal pointsAll Sky-Watcher Refractors are built with air-spaced two-element lenses, which reduce chromatic aberration more than standard doublet lenses.
The Capricorn-70 is a classic two-element, air-spaced achromatic refractor telescope of very good quality, and makes an excellent choice for the more serious novice astronomer.
