The 1.25" Series 4000 #3200 Lunar And Planetary Color Filter Set from Meade Instruments comes with four assorted filters mounted in black anodized aluminum cells, packed in a plastic case. All four eyepiece filters are threaded to fit most 1.25" eyepieces and accessories. The cells of each filter are double-threaded so that they can be stacked in different combinations. This filter set includes: ND-96 Neutral Density, #12 Yellow, #25A Red, and #80A Blue filters.

#25A Red Filter
  • 14% transmission
  • Moon: Improves lunar features
  • Jupiter: Useful for studying bluer clouds
  • Mars: Ideal for observation of the polar ice caps and features on the Martian surface. Sharpens the boundaries of yellow dust clouds
  • Mercury: Improves observation at twilight, when the planet is near the horizon. During daylight, it reduces the brightness of the blue sky to enhance surface features
  • Saturn: Useful for studying bluer clouds
  • Venus: Use during daylight observing to reduce brightness of blue sky. Occasionally deformations of the terminator are visible
#80A Blue Filter
  • 30% transmission
  • Moon: Enhances lunar detail
  • Jupiter: Enhance the boundaries between the reddish belts and adjacent bright zones. Useful for viewing the Great Red Spot
  • Mars: Very useful during the violet clearing. Helpful in studying surface features and polar caps
  • Mercury: Improve observation of dusky surface markings at twilight, when the planet is near the horizon
  • Saturn: Enhance low-contrast features between the belts and zones
  • Venus: Useful for increased contrast of dark shadings in upper Venusian clouds
  • Comets: Brings out the best definition in comet gas tails
#12 Yellow
  • 74% transmission
  • Moon - Enhances the lunar features
  • Jupiter - Penetrates and darkens the atmospheric currents that contain low-hue blue tones. It enhances the orange and red features of the belts and zones. It is useful for studies of the polar regions
  • Mars: Reduces the light from the blue and green areas which darken the marias, oases and canal markings while lightening the orange-hued desert regions. It also sharpens the boundaries of yellow dust clouds
  • Neptune: Will improve detail in larger telescopes such as an 11" or larger apertures
  • Saturn: Penetrates and darkens the atmospheric currents containing low-hue blue tones. It enhances the orange and red features of the belts and zones
  • Uranus: improves detail in larger telescopes such as an 11" or larger apertures. Venus: Reveals low-contrast surface features
  • Comets: Enhances the definition in comet tails
ND-96 Neutral Density Filter
  • 13% transmission
  • Moon: Excellent for reducing irradiation, glare and subject brightness. Colors are unaltered, as light is transmitted uniformly over the entire spectrum. Each model performs somewhat differently, depending on the brightness of the moon
  • Planets: Stacking in combination with color filters lowers transmission, but retains true color balance for specific applications. Reduces glare on brighter planets and minimizes irradiation
  • Binary (Double) Stars: Helpful in splitting binary stars, because it reduces glare and diffraction effects around the brighter star of the binary pair
