I don't use a Moon filter - never felt the need. You can always put on some sunglasses if it's too bright  :grin: and you don't need one for imaging IMO.

Yeah sweet, I would assume just the planets,Saturn and Jupiter mostly, but the moon hasn't been that bad on me yet, I'm sure a full moon willow

Beast, always buy your equipment from a dedicated astronomy store, that way you will be sure to get the right thing and get good advice too. Example here:

As regards Moon filter, some people prefer them, some don't.  I would say view without first and see how you get on.
