Abstract

A compensated imaging system that corrects optical path length distortions due to atmospheric turbulence by means of an achromatic corrector will have residual errors caused by the dispersion of the atmosphere. These errors become significant for astronomical objects at large zenith angles, but they may be minimized by special dispersion correctors.
