Eyepiece Accessories and Filters
Enhance your viewing of the planets and the moon. Even a 3/4 moon can reflect enough light to strain the eyes, so the use of a moon filter helps to reduce the incoming light and will even improve the contrast. The coloured filters are matched to help improve the viewing of a number of the Planets, and even comets.
Celestron's Moon Filter is an economical eyepiece filter for reducing the brightness of the moon and improving contrast, so greater detail can be observed on the lunar surface. The clear aperture is 21mm and the transmission is about 18%. Screws on to the filter thread of any Celestron, or other manufacturer's 1.25 inch eyepiece.
The Sky-Watcher 1.25 Inch Light Pollution Filter is a contrast-enhancing anodised aluminium, optical glass filter designed to block out the wavelengths of light emitted by mercury-vapour light and other common causes of light pollution, whilst providing higher transmission at critical hydrogen-alpha and hydrogen-beta lines than competing filters. Bright,
Cheshire Collimating Eyepiece.Designed to assist with the accurate collimation of a Newtonian reflector telescope.
The Sky-Watcher 2 Inch O-III Narrowband Filter is specially designed for the observation of gas and planetary nebulae. It distinguishes different contrasts of the wavelengths of light that pass through, giving ideal conditions for the observation of faint super nova remnants and planetary remnants.
Whether you're looking to build a telescope system from scratch, or wish to upgrade your "kit" Star Diagonal, the Altair Astro 2 inch SCT Dielectric Diagonal offers 99% reflectivity due to its multi-layer dielectric coatings, and extreme durability thanks to its CNC machined aluminium casing. The barrel is threaded for attaching additional filters, and
This Baader semi-APO filter is for use with achromatic optics and is designed to cut down on the chromatic aberration and fringe aberration of achromat lenses; presenting a clearer, crisper image.
This 1mW red laser collimating device boasts some of the best and most practical functions collimators can offer. A large display window allows the user to clearly see the face of the device. Whilst most other brand name collimators only have one setting, this has seven adjustable brightness levels. The 1.25" laser collimator comes complete with a removable
Experience unrivalled views of our nearest star with one of these fantastic solar filters. These fully-mounted filters are far safer and easier to use than 'solar film' as they are mounted in a frame which is securely attached over the end of your telescope or camera lens via thumb-screws. This not only means that the filter can be quickly and easily attached

Designed for serious Astro-Imagersand optimised for the Evostar-100ED PRO, the Sky-Watcher 0.85x Focal Reducer/Corrector effectively reduces the telescope's focal length by a factor of 0.85x and provides much improved field-edge correction. Use in conjunction with Sky-watcher's M48 Canon or Nikon T-ring adaptors (product codes 20237 & 20238).
