Home Filters Lunar & Planetary Filters Meade Series 4000 Moon Filter ND96 1.25 Inch
An essential for lunar observing in telescopes, the full moon's appearance through the eyepiece of your telescope can be dazzling. Retaining dark adaption of your eyes is achieved easier by using a neutral desnsity filter such as this to reduce brightness without affecting the natural colour balance.
A moon filter acts like a pair of sunglasses dramatically reducing glare, brightness and lets you observe the lunar surface comfortably. Craters on the lunar surface stand out in better detail and definition and contrast is greatly improved. This filter may also be employed in the splitting of close double stars where one of the binary pair significantly exceeds the other in brightness.The Meade series 4000 ND96 Moon Filter is 1.25" format and manufactured from high quality crown optical glass. Anti-reflection coatings are on both sides and iit s mounted in a machined aluminum cell. This filter threads into the barrels of nearly all 1.25" eyepieces or accessories.Density: 0.9 Transmission: 13% Clear aperture: 26mmStandard 1.25" filter thread Coating: Anti-reflection coating on glass's both sides
Meade 4000 Moon Filter Essential for lunar observation especially when viewing a full moon! (19/06/2020) John Martin - Durham
Excellent Bought to reduce the luminosity of Moon. I tested this with the waxing gibbous moon; it reduced the glare but did not spoil the pinpoint vison of craters etc with a 26 mm plossl. Did not introduce any noticeable aberrations or distortions across the field of view. Dida perfect job. Recommended. (07/01/2020) -
Wow factor! I have a modest Meade telescope and tend to focus primarily on the Moon. Until now I thought I was getting decent images, but then I decided to invest in a Moon filter. I first used on the night prior to the lunar eclipse, and literally said ‘Wow!’ when I saw the amazing clarity. Highly recommended! (20/01/2019) Billy S - Ayr
