Celestron Moon Filter – 1.25”
View our closest planetary neighbour with the Celestron Moon Filter. This tinted 1.25” filter is ideal for viewing the Moon through a telescope as reducing the brightness of the planet’s surface brings out more details on the lunar surface.
Perfect for lunar observers
This visual filter is an economical eyepiece filter that brings out more detail when looking at the Moon’s surface. By improving the contrast greater details such as craters, mountain ranges, seas and valleys will become more easily visible.
Transform in seconds
This filter screws onto the insert barrel of most Celestron 1.25” eyepieces. It takes only seconds to transform your regular eyepiece into one suited for lunar observations.

Who is this filter best for?
We can all observe the Moon every clear night so this is often the best place to start for any budding amateur astronomers. The Moon Filter will provide instant impact and improve the brightness of the moon making it easier to view.
Why are filters important?
Filters help our eyes to relax when looking at a bright planet through a telescope. Just as we often wear sunglasses on a bright day to help relax our eyes from the glare, filters do the same and make the viewing experience much more comfortable and let you see extra details on the planet surface.
Can the Moon filter be used on other planets?
The Moon filter can be useful when observing Venus or other bright terrestrial scenes. It is not suitable for viewing the Sun.
What telescopes does this go well with?
It is compatible with the vast majority of 1.25” eyepieces, for example, the ones included with the Celestron 114LCM Computerised Telescope or the Celestron Nexstar 127 SLT Computerised Telescope.
