Meade's ND 96 Moon Filter, with 13% transmission, is a neutral density filter transmitting light uniformly across the entire visual spectrum.  It serves as an excellent filter to reduce glare and irradiation when observing the Moon with any telescope with an aperture of 4.0" and larger.  The ND96 filter may also be employed in the splitting of close double stars where one of the binary pair significantly exceeds the other in brightness.

      Comments about Meade Series 4000 Moon Filter ND96 (1.25") - For Viewing Brighter Moons:

      I can see more details in the craters and mountains of the moon with this, and much more comfortably. Without it, in my 8" dobs, the moon is so bright I walk away after a few seconds with a hole burned in my eye.

                          This filter is a must for observers of the moon. It tones down the brightness of the moon ever so slightly and allows you to see the details of the moon-scape
