Improves the Clarity of Bright Objects in Refractors
With refractors, it's normal to see some purple fringing or halos around bright objects such as the planets, Moon, and bright stars. Such false color, or chromatic aberration, results from the inability of a standard two-element ("achromatic") lens assembly to focus all wavelengths of light to a single point. The effect is particularly pronounced at higher powers. The V-Block removes this color, while improving the normal color, and focus.
