The filter set work by blocking certain frequencies of light and allowing others to pass. An Orange filter will block the blue and green and let Orange pass. Different coloured filters will allow different transmissions of light and consideration must be made to the aperture of the telescope for some filters.

Our Filter set have been chosen to enhance you views of the planets that can show detail.

We hope you enjoy your new filter set.
