Comparison

This type of refracting telescopes is the most common and popular among stargazers.

Achromatic telescopes significantly (but not completely) reduce the effect of chromatic and spherical aberrations. Usually it’s a doublet with gathering and diffusing lenses made of an optical glass with different refractive indices. The image quality is a bit worse than apochromatic telescopes provide, but the manufacturing process is much cheaper. In Levenhuk online shop you will find a great choice of achromatic refractors at very competitive prices!
