Meade Color Filters

Postby clydevdavis on Thu Feb 05, 2009 3:49 pm

Help! I'm a newbie and need help with a "starter" set of Meade Telescope Filters.

I've looked at the 07530, 07529, 07528, Series 4000 Photo Visual Color Telescope Filters, the #3200 Lunar Planetary Filter Set 07544 and the Meade Moon Filter.

What set should I order for my 90mm refractor?

Thanks for the help.

That's your call, but on a smaller scope, I'd go with the lighter tones - these have higher light transmission. The darker tones should only be used on larger scopes. You lose too much light with a 90mm scope.

Stay with the 4000 series if you want better and more consistent quality.
