History of Astronomy Group Meeting: “John Dolland and the Achromatic Lens” by Eddie Yeadon

Flamsteed History of Astronomy Group Meeting. Eddie Yeadon will talk about “John Dolland and the achromatic lens”. Isaac Newton investigated the dispersion of light into a colour spectrum by refraction and concluded that making a colour-free lens was impossible, so he designed and made a telescope using a mirror instead. But some theorists argued that, since the eye does not show colour fringing, it must be possible to correct a lens in a similar way. It was left to John…
