Chromatic aberration, seen through a lens that is also showing the words 'chromatic aberration'. Unless it is engineered to be achromatic, a lens will separate light that passes through it. This produces the fringe of colours seen here. This effect was a major obstacle to the manufacture of good quality telescopes and microscopes, and it was not until achromatic lenses were perfected that further discoveries could be made using telescopes and microscopes.
