Description

Enhance astronomical viewing with the Zhumell Lunar and Planetary color filter set!

 

The Zhumell Lunar and Planetary color filter set includes #21 Orange, #12 Yellow, #80A Blue and ND96-0.6 filters. These filters can be used individually or together to bring out detail in the images you see through your telescope. Why should you use filters? Here are just a few of the uses of the filters in this kit:

 

#12 Yellow - 74%VLT
Yellow filters help greatly in viewing Mars by bringing out the polar ice-caps, enhancing blue clouds in the atmosphere, increasing contrast, and brightening desert regions. Yellow also enhances red and orange features on Jupiter and Saturn and darkens the blue festoons near Jupiter's equator.

 

#21 Orange - 46%VLT
An orange filter helps increase contrast between light and dark areas, penetrates clouds, and assists in detecting dust storms on Mars. Orange also helps bring out the Great Red Spot and sharpen contrast on Jupiter.

 

#80A Blue - 30%VLT
A blue filter provides detail in atmospheric clouds on Mars, increases contrast on the moon, brings out detail in belts and polar features on Saturn, enhances contrast of Jupiter's bright areas and cloud boundaries. A blue filter is also useful in helping to split the binary star Antares when at maximum separation.

 

ND96-0.6 - Neutral Density
Neutral density filters allow all wavelenghts to pass through equally. The effect of a neutral density filter is to reduce the overall brightness of an image. Neutral density filters are useful for splitting binary systems and reducing glare.

 

Zhumell filters will fit any standard 1.25" format telescope eyepiece.

    This is a slick little set of color filters to fit into my 1 ¼” eyepiece collection. After a little trial and error with lunar views, I applied them to Jupiter and Saturn with interesting results. The kit is well suited for a beginner who wants to learn how to use filters to enhance the amateur astronomy experience. Well worth the money to get started on this enhancement to the hobby.

    Decent filter set for price....

    Good filter set for the money. The neutral density filter is the most useful of the 4 but the color filters will come in handy from time to time on planets. Hard to beat...Read complete review

      Comments about Zhumell Lunar and Planetary Color Telescope Filter Set:

      The only one I've really seen a change with is when I used the yellow on Jupiter. The red and blue filters just make everything red or blue. Overall, I'm still very pleased with my purchase.

              Not a bad set for the price. It's well worth it. I've only got to use the clear filter to look at the moon and it was awesome. Came with a nice case that is well padded. If you're just looking for a basic filter set to start out with, this is it.
