Lunar and Planetary Filters

Lunar and planetary filters are used to reduce brightness and glare, and can also reveal subtle detail that is lost when one color dominates the object. Observing the moon with any telescope larger than three inches in aperture is a lot like shining a flashlight into your eye. Lunar filters are color neutral but reduce brightness and glare, making your observations more comfortable and enjoyable. Color planetary filters are used to reveal subtle detail that may otherwise be lost when one color dominates the object. Mars is a classic example here, where the color red is so predominant that other details are often missed without a suitable filter.
