Meade Series 4000 Color Filters permit observation and photography of planetary surface detail that is often virtually invisible without filtration. Choose the filter or filter set that best meet your needs and see what you have been missing! Use filters individually or stacked to achieve selective filtration of the visual color spectrum.
Manufactured from the finest optical glass, each filter has its color spectrum dyed into the glass instead of being done with inferior color coatings. All filters are anti-reflection coated on both sides of the glass for the highest performance. The filters have a clear aperture of 26mm and are threaded for and compatible with all standard 1.25" telescope eyepieces. The filters can also be stacked with each other. Each Series 4000 Filter is packed in a foam-fitted plastic case for secure long-term storage.
Color filters are considered by many to be an essential "must have" for observing and imaging the Moon and planets. The Meade Series 4000 Color Filter Set #2 (#07529) includes the following filters:
#11 Yellow-Green (78% Transmission) - Contrasts with red and blue features on Jupiter. Darkens the maria on Mars. Clarifies the Cassini division in Saturn's rings.
#25A Red (14% Transmission) - Dark red blocks blue and blue-green for sharp contrast in Jupiter's cloud belts. Helps define polar caps and maria on Mars. For telescopes 8" plus.
#47 Violet (3% Transmission) - Strongly rejects red, yellow and green. For study of Martian polar caps, the atmosphere of Venus, and Saturn's rings. For telescopes 8" plus.
#82A Light Blue (73% Transmission) - Useful on the moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Light blue adds contrast without robbing image brightness. A valuable filter for stacking.
