Moon Filter & Barlow

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all

Hope this post is in the right section.

After much deliberation i have decided to opt for the SkyWatcher Heratige 130p telescope,as i am a  complete begginer ,and don't know anything about this hobby. As this telescope comes with the standard 10-25mm lens's,would it be worthwhile buying the Revelation ND96 Premium Moon Filter 1.25  along with a astro essential 1.25 barlow lens while i am in the spending mood,or are there better barlow len's and  moon filters about.

Any help would be appreciated  

Thank You

The Revelation moon filter is fine but perhaps worth getting a variable polarising filter instead as it can be adjusted to suit.

An OK basic barlow but yes there are much better ones ££££ depending on your budget. However would recommend holding off on the barlow and getting a better eyepiece as the suppiled ones aren’t that good.

The BST Starguiders are very good and would also be good if you upgrade to another scope later on.
