    Meade Series 4000 Filters

     

    Color filters are essential for observing and imaging the moon and planets in tantalizing detail.  The right filter can mean quite literally the difference between seeing several small craters in the floor of Clavius on the moon or not; seeing five or six swirls in Jupiter's north equatorial belt or not; seeing the inner crepe ring of Saturn or not.

     

    Depending on atmospheric conditions on Earth and the planet being observed (or photographed), the advantage of color filters can be anywhere from subtle to dramatic.

     

    Meade Series 4000 filters offer 26mm of clear aperture and are manufactured from the purest optical glass, dyed-in-the-mass (not "color coated") There are no finer filters available for telescopic applications.  They thread into the barrels of virtually any brand of 1.25" eyepiece as well as the 1.25" Meade Basic Camera Adapter.  They may also be stacked to achieve selective filtration of the visual color spectrum.

     

    Each Series 4000 filter is packed in a foam-fitted plastic case for safe long-term storage.
