Meade Series 4000 4-Piece Filter Set #1 (1.25") Yellow #12, Light Red #23A, Green #58 & Blue 80A

You Pay: $39.95

Color filters significantly enhance visual and photographic image contrast of the Moon and planets. Each filter threads into the barrel of any Meade 1.25" eyepiece, and into the barrels of virtually all other eyepiece brands as well.Set # 1 includes:

# 12 Yellow (74% transmission): Contrasts strongly with blue-colored features on Jupiter and Saturn, while enhancing red and orange features. Lightens red-orange features on Mars, while reducing or blocking the transmission, and thereby increasing the contrast, of blue-green areas. Useful in increasing the contrast of lunar features in telescopes 6" aperture and larger.

# 23A Light Red (25% transmission): On telescopes of 6" aperture and larger the # 23A does approximately the same functions as the # 21 filter, but with stronger contrast and enhancement of marginally defined blue-green surface detail. Useful primarily on Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars. Increases contrast between Mercury and bright blue sky during daylight observations or during twilight.

# 58 Green (24% transmission): Use on telescopes 8" aperture and larger to reject blue- and red-toned structures on the surface of Jupiter and thereby increase their contrast relative to lighter parts of the disc. Also use for the enhancement of Saturn's cloud belts and polar regions. Strongly increases contrast of Mars' polar ice caps, and increases contrast of atmospheric phenomena on Venus.

# 80A Blue (30% transmission): A popular filter for the study of Jupiter and Saturn. Enhances contrast of rilles and festoons in Jupiter's cloud belts, as well as details of the Red Spot. Brings out detail in Saturn's belts and polar phenomena. Very useful as a contrast-enhancing lunar filter.

    Comments about Meade Series 4000 4 Pc Filter Set #1 (1.25"):

    I use these filters with Meade Series 5000 eyepieces. They provide an alternative to none filtered views and enhance certain aspects of planets and nebula.
