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,
The SkyTech CLS Canon EOS Clip Filter aids astrophotography on Canon AOS-C EOS cameras by blocking light pollution while allowing light from deepsky objects through. The CLS filter has a wide pass-band, giving a natural colour rendition, meaning it is ideal for areas with moderate light pollution such as in city outskirts or suburban locations.
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
The Skywatcher 1.25 Inch Variable Polarising Filter is a high quality anodised aluminium, optical glass variable polarising filter designed to reduce the amount of light entering your eyepiece. You can progressively dim the view when observing a bright object, such as the Moon or certain planets, to a level according to your needs, whilst increasing contrast,
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
The Sky-Watcher 1.25 Inch Ultra High Contrast (UHC) Filter is the best all-around dark-sky nebula filter. This filter permits superb views of objects like the Orion, Lagoon, Swan and other extended nebulae. It performs well in smaller aperture instruments owing to its greater light transmission than the O-III, yet still suppresses light pollution well.
Cheshire Collimating Eyepiece.Designed to assist with the accurate collimation of a Newtonian reflector telescope.
The Baader Hyperion Eyepiece T-Adapter enables you to attach cameras fitted with T-rings to Baader Hyperion eyepieces for eyepiece projection photography. It is suitable for use with Baader eyepieces with a 43mm thread - such as Hyperion fixed focal length eyepieces and the Mk III 8-24mm zoom eyepiece (but not the Mk II zoom eyepiece) - attaching to the
Baader Solar Filters provide a professional and secure solution to observe and image the Sun using AstroSolar Safety Film. Many ready-made filters stretch the filter material like a drumhead in order to make it look like a piece of glass this absolutely destroys the image quality, rendering the film useless for high magnification work.
