- In many large-diameter Gaussian secondary spectrum of axial chromatic aberration
- This problem occurs when using glass and others with the same Abbe number, a lens that is different partial dispersion ratio
- When used in a positive lens lanthanum flint glass small partial dispersion ratio
- When used in a negative lens of flint glass titanium large partial dispersion ratio
- Canon patent
- Using a lens with a partial dispersion ratio appropriate correcting the axial chromatic aberration secondary spectrum
- The concave lens surface adjacent to the aperture, coma aberration correction, the sagittal flare
