Hi Tom,Refractor unless they are large (over 6") and for achromats long (very very long; for a 6" at least f/15 to f/20 really) are not worth considering for imaging purpose. These filters are , in my humble opinion, just hiding the issue by removing or diminishing some of the offenders. Ditto for b&w whereas you can’t see it but it is there anyway. The only safe way to image using achros is to use a monochromatic imager and RGB composite technique to get rid of CA (but you’d still get chromatic spherical aberration the faster the telescope the worse it is going to be).
