      Comments about Meade #3200 Lunar & Planetary Telescope Color Filter Set:

      Great item for a low price. I am new to astronomy and would recommend this for anyone that is new to the hobby.

      The moon filter does a great job cutting back on glare and makes it easier to see the details.

      I have used the yellow filter on Mars but I will need to purchase a more powerful eyepiece to help with the detail.

          Comments about Meade #3200 Lunar & Planetary Telescope Color Filter Set:

          I'm pretty new to astronomy, and planetary observation was one of the greatest draws to my getting a telescope in the first place. Since Mars is up right now, it only seemed appropriate that I compare/contrast the view with and without the filter. The amount of detail to be seen in Mars is dramatically increased (I'm referring to the light-blue filter which the included instructions recommended for Mars) as was the full moon with the included lunar filter. This was a great start for me filter-wise!

            Customer Q & A

            7 Questions About This Product
            Q: "Will this filter set work on my Meade ETX-125 eyepieces?"
            A: Yes, Those filters are the standard 1-1/4 inch format, just like your eyepieces on your Meade ETX. They will thread onto the eyepiece perfectly.
            Q: "Wiil this set work with series 5000 eyepieces"
            A: Yes, the #3200 Lunar & Planetary Color Filter Set will work just fine with Series 5000 eyepieces.
            Q: "I have the beginners Telestar 60AZ-A. 1.Will these filters fit the 60AZ-A? 2.Are these filters narrowband, or nebula filters? The text Im reading says that narrowband, or nebula filters are a better choice for viewing emission nebulas. Thanks, Chris"
            A: The #3200 Lunar & Planetary Filter Set is primary for viewing the Moon and planets. The filters will fit just about any 1.25-inch eyepiece, including those in your Telestar. As your text indicates, narrowband, nebular filters are the best ones for viewing emission nebulae. Here's the URL for a narrowband nebular filter that eliminates most artificial light; just paste it into your browser's address window to see the filter: http://telescopes.com/products/Meade_908N_Narrowband_Nebular_Filter_1.25_Inch_18373.html.
            Q: "I live in a small urban area, but with some light polution. I was wondering what type of filter to get. Thank you very much?"
            A: We recommend the Celestron UHC/LPR filter. It blocks wavelengths of artificial light, leaving you with an ultra high-contrast image. Here's the URL; just paste it into your browser's address window: http://telescopes.com/products/celestron-uhclpr-filter-1-25-inch-32972.html.
            Q: "I have a Celestron Casegrain 8" 1 1/4. Can I use the Meade #3200 Lunar & Planetary Color Filter Set filter?"
            A: Yes, you can use the Meade #3200 set with any telescope having a 1.25-inch format.
            Q: "what are the Wratten numbers for these filters? Thanks?"
            A: Meade does not list Wratten numbers for these filters. However, the Wratten number for light red is #23A, light yellow is #12 and light blue is #82A. Neutral-Density is 96-0.9.
            Q: "Can this be fitted on the Meade 114EQ?"
            A: Yes, the filters in the Meade #3200 Lunar & Planetary Color Filter Set can be used with the Meade 114EQ telescope. The filters thread onto the eyepieces.
