The Moon is always a popular target both with beginners as well as with more seasoned observers. There are lots to see – craters, “seas” and mountain ranges – and even with a small telescope like Celestron’s AstroMaster 70 AZ you can become a “Lunar rover”!
The Moon can be bright to look at when its phase heads towards full, even with a small telescope, leading to eyestrain. So to observe it in comfort, Celestron offer their 1.25″ Moon Filter Set which comprises three neutral density filters, of 13%, 25% and 50% transmission, to cut down the Moons glare and a Moon & Sky Glow filter for improving contrast for observing subtle Lunar features. The latter filter can also be used to help observe deep sky objects as it blocks some of the wavelengths of light that is associated with light pollution (e.g. low-pressure sodium (LPS) street lights).
The filters come in a durable plastic storage case to keep them safe and clean, and the case features a useful mini Moon map too.
