The paper concerns processing of optical images by means of tunable acousto-optic filters. Experimental and theoretical research showed that longitudinal chromatic aberrations cause a suffcient decay of the spatial resolution in the devices. It is shown that a proper choice of an optical cheme of an imager reduces the longitudinal aberrations all over the tuning range of the filters.
