    High Point #56 Light Green Filter - 1.25"

    This #56 Light Green Filter, 53% transmission by High Point Scientific is an invaluable aid to lunar and planetary observing. This filter will reduce glare and light scattering, increase contrast through selective filtration, increase definition and resolution, reduce irradiation and lessen eye fatigue. The Light Green Filter has a Wratten number of #56 and can help you see cloud patterns on Venus, the Great Red Spot on Jupiter, as well as sharpen your observations of Mars. With a transmission of 53%, views of the Moon will also be enhanced. The #56 Light Green Filter is also a lighter green than the #58.

    All of High Point's colored filters are made of high quality, solid plane parallel glass that has been anti-reflection coated to prevent glare and ghosting. They have a full 26mm clear aperture and are mounted in a black anodized aluminum cell that is threaded on both sides to fit most 1.25" eyepieces and stack with each other.

    Please note that the effectiveness of this filter depends on several factors, including aperture and focal length of your telescope, magnification, and the seeing conditions. Remember that filters lower the amount of light that reaches your eye. You'll need an aperture of at least 8 inches for dark filters such as the #47 Violet, with only 3% transmission, the #25 Red with just 14% transmission, or the #38A Blue with 17% transmission.
