Explore Scientific Filter Set 3 - Moon & Planets for telescopes greater than 150mm aperture


Set 3 includes the following filters: 

Explore Scientific Filter 1.25" Light Blue No.82A - 0310265
The color of light blue really supports watching the high clouds on Mars. The contrast increases and the darker red surface will be shown even darker, so this is the perfect filter for watching the big red storms and barges on the gas planet Jupiter. The rings of Saturn will be accentuated, the structures of the Venus Atmosphere will be even finer. 

Explore Scientific Filter 1.25" Violet No.47 - 0310272
The purple filter is perfect for watching Venus. Seeing through it, the dark clouds of the Venus atmosphere become more visible. This filter also shows the structures of the rings around Saturn in finer detail. Using telescopes of larger apertures, this filter is also good for watching Mercury (though will need excellent seeing conditions to discern any albeido features). 

Explore Scientific Filter 1.25" Light Red No.23A - 0310271
The blue/blue green light is consideerably attenuated by this filter. The contrast between the darker and the lighter zones of planets will increase considerably. This is very helpful when you're observing Jupiter or Saturn. Mars is also excellently seen using this filter, which helps to isolate features such as the polar caps. 

Explore Scientific Filter 1.25" Yellow-Green No.11 - 0310269
Observing the Moon's surface through the filter, the contrast will increase enormously. The same with the planet Mars. On the huge planet Jupiter, when using the filter, you can see the contrasts between the cloud-bands and a lot more detail. When using a telescope of aperture 8“ or above and a clear seeing conditions, you will get to see greater details on Saturn. 

What is a colour filter for and do we really need it? 
Colour Filters darken the light that reaches the eye or the sensor of the camera increase slightly. This eliminates for instance stronger transmissions. The result is that your picture turns out with more contrast which automatically shows more details.
