Product Details

  • Eyepiece filters are an invaluable aid in lunar and planetary observing. They reduce glare and light scattering, increase contrast through selective filtration, increase definition and resolution, reduce irradiation and lessen eye fatigue.

    TPO filters are made of high quality, solid plane parallel glass with excellent homogeneity. They are anti-reflection coated to prevent glaring and ghosting. All eyepiece filters are threaded to fit most 1.25" eyepieces and offer a full 26mm clear aperture. Comes with a hinged, plastic case to keep your filter safe and clean when not in use.

    #23A Light Red (25% transmission): On telescopes of 6" aperture and larger the #23A does approximately the same functions as the #21 filter, but with stronger contrast and enhancement of marginally defined blue-green surface detail. Useful primarily on Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars. Increases contrast between Mercury and bright blue sky during daylight observations or during twilight.

Highlights features on Mars

I have a 4 inch refractor so I have to work to tease out any details on the planets. This filter helped bring out some of the large scale dark areas on Mars which I’ve never seen before.
