Which filter?

Recommended Posts

Am wanting to have a go at some lunar imaging as a side interest to deep sky imaging.  Will be using a Skymax 150 pro hubby used to use for his observing, with a ZWO asi 120 mono on NEQ6. I also have a 2.5x powermate.  Firecapture is the software I have.  I am thinking a 1.25"  red filter would be a good idea but have only been able to find them as part of sets and don't really want to buy a set.  Is a red filter a good idea with my set up ?

If you have an Olll filter from your deep sky kit,  try that.  I find it works quite well on lunar imaging.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I do have the one you suggest Dave but  when I last used it, admittedly some time ago when I didn't persevere much  I couldn't get any image  but will have a more concerted effort this time.  I do have an Olll filter as part of my deep sky set up so will try that also.

Thanks for the link John.  Am going to try the astronomik one I have again and if it doesn't work will have a go at the 685nm Altair one.
