        Comments about Baader Planetarium Contrast Booster Telescope Filter:

        The contrast booster fromm Baader works perfect , it removes the violet fringes at high power from achromatic refractor and darken the background sky . It gives a subtle yellowish color when looking at planets or the moon but it is really not a problem . It stays on my diagonal at all time.

            Comments about Baader Planetarium Contrast Booster Telescope Filter:

            Baader claims that this filter completely eliminates fringing from achromatic refractors which it does , but it produces an excessive amount of a red/blue opposing limb on Jupiter which in my opinion distracts from the quality of the view . The[...]filter also eliminates the fringing every bit as well , has better light throughput , retains the natural color of the view much better and produces a very slight , almost unnoticed red/blue opposing limb compared to the Baader Contrast Booster . So the [...]wins hands down .

            Nice filter for non-ED refractors.

              Noticed a difference when used and gave improved details on the Moon's craters and Saturn's rings. Baader products are great for the price.
