Refractor telescopes

ED Refractor telescopes usually give a higher contrast image than reflecting telescopes of the same aperture. They are more expensive "per inch" of aperture than reflectors, however they are smaller and more portable.

Refractors deliver a very high contrast image, and can be used at a variety of magnifications. For this reason they are a favourite amongst astro imagers and visual users alike. ED Doublet or ED Triplet APO refractors produce higher quality images, with better colour rendition and contrast than normal Achromat refractors of the same focal length.
