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 #3 (#07528) includes the following filters:

#8 Light Yellow (83% Transmission) - Popular for enhancing lunar features in telescopes 8" and under. Also for observing red and orange features of Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune.

#21 Orange (46% Transmission) - Blocks blue-green wavelengths to enhance detail in polar regions of Jupiter and Saturn. Also sharpens edge detail of maria on Mars.

#38A Dark Blue (17% Transmission) - Popular for study of Jupiter. Strongly rejects orange and red for greater cloud belt and Red Spot contrast. Also for general detail on Mars, Saturn and Venus.

#56 Light Green (53% Transmission) - Excellent for Mars' polar ice caps and yellow-tinted dust storms. Also for increasing red and blue features on Jupiter and lunar contrast.

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