  1. Thank you to the helpful replies that included some helpful information and signposting to useful resources based on what we have so far and my original question. Much appreciated. In regards to the scope it was bought with a quick setup in mind and ease of breakdown/storage. In regards to filters, especially the moon filter, I am recovering from bilateral cataract surgery last week and my eyes are, and will be for sometime, sensitive to bright light especially that under magnification. I felt a moon filter was a good and sensible idea. I was put off from the hobby due to the extreme restrictions posed by my previous eyesight. We wanted to purchase a scope that wasn't too expensive to test my hopefully new and improved vision without splashing out on expensive kit right away. We will be using the scope as much as we can, skies permitting, and will test the scope and my new eyes. Thanks
  2. Hi Myself and my partner have just bought a Celestron Inspire 80AZ telescope. We have set it up and viewed the moon a little last night but not for long as it was cloudy. The scope came with 20mm and 10mm eyepieces. We have a moon filter arriving today. Also for Xmas I have a Celestron Astromaster kit coming from Santa to add two more eyepieces (15mm and 6mm), a 2x barlow and some red blue filters. Any general tips or suggestions would be most appreciated. I think we mainly plan on observing the moon, planets and large clusters. Would a 32mm be a good addition? Thanks DandD
