Those new to astronomy tend to purchase telescopes this way without seeking proper advice first. The LXD series of telescopes is based on several different types of telescope designs.

However, the technology for manufacturing objective lenses has improved such that it is now possible to con struct large aperture refractors with relatively short focal lengths. So, apertures larger than four inches are still quite portable. The primary objective of a refractor defines the quality of the instrument. Single glass lens refractors tend to suffer from an effect called chromatic aberration. 1. Schematic Eyepiece Focus Mount of the LXD AR refractor.
