Meade Series 4000 #3200 Lunar And Planetary Color Filter Set - 07544
One of the most satisfying things about astronomy is being able to observe planets that are hundreds of millions of miles away. But, even with modern telescope technology, there are planetary features that remain invisible to the naked eye. Even the moon, which is really close to Earth, has details you can’t view with many consumer telescopes. Using color filters while stargazing can strengthen the contrast of planetary features and make them easier to observe. These Meade filters come in four colors and have their color spectrums actually dyed into the glass rather than being coated in a color treatment, and they’re stackable so you can combine multiple filters. Each filter also has an anti-reflection coating and is compatible with Meade Series 4000 and 5000 eyepieces.
#25A Red (14% Transmission) - for sharp contrast in Jupiter's cloud belts, helps define polar caps and maria on Mars. Best for larger telescopes due to restricted transmission.
#12 Yellow (74% Transmission) - this filter adds contrast to blues, enhances reds and yellows on Jupiter and Saturn, and increases contrast on Mars and on the Moon
#80A Blue (30% Transmission) - this is a popular filter for enhancing spiral features in Jupiter's cloud belt including the Red Spot and adding contrast to Saturn and the
ND96 (13% transmission) - reduces glare when observing the Moon.
