|Contribution||Made achromatic objective.|
|Notes||Bradbury does not give the specific date. Deyl (van Deyl or van Deijl) combined a biconvex crown-glass lens with biconcave flint-glass lens (with the concavity facing the object being almost flat). Helped to reduce spherical as well as chromatic aberration.|
