>No ED-doublet should ever be called "apochromatic"!!!

Everyone bashes Meade for this practice. Remember that they're not the only ones calling doublets APOs. The label is well-deserved. Of course, if the optics aren't aligned, there will be a lot of color. The same can be said for Al's best doublets. I've seen it.

Collimate the optics and the color will go away.
