Product Details

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 #1 (#07530) includes the following filters:

#12 Yellow (74% Transmission) - Adds contrast to blues and enhances reds and yellows on Jupiter and Saturn. Increases contrast on Mars and the moon (in scopes 6" plus).

#23A Light Red (25% Transmission) - Enhances detail in polar regions of Jupiter, Saturn and Mars (in scopes 6" plus). Also increases contrast between Mercury and the evening/morning sky.

#58 Green (24% Transmission) - On telescopes 8" plus, this green filter increases belt structure on Jupiter and Saturn's surface and in Saturn's rings. Also enhances ice caps on Mars.

#80A Blue (30% Transmission) - A popular filter for enhancing spiral features in Jupiter's cloud belt (including the Red Spot), and adding contrast to Saturn and the moon.

Product carries full one year Meade factory limited warranty (within US/Canada only).
