We are able to see the Moon at night thanks to sunlight reflecting off its rocky surface. When looking at the Moon through a telescope, bright reflected sunlight can produce significant glare.

The Moon's disk, even at partial phases, is intensely bright with reflected sunlight. The glare washes out most of the craters, rilles, and other surface details from view. Our Moon Filter reduces the glare, allowing transmission of only 13% of the reflected light. Not only will you see more surface features, but you can study them in greater comfort.
The 1.25" moon filter, consisting of flat steamed glass, is simply screwed into the eyepiece thread. It reduces the brightness of the moon andthusenhances thecontrastin the observation. This filter is mainly necessary during the major moon phases, since the subjective glare of the moon then is strongest and can quickly become unpleasant.
Does the Moon appear far too bright when observing it through your telescope? The Omegon Moon filter reduces the brightness and increases contrast. It screws easy into your eyepiece, permitting relaxed observing and stopping the Moon from dazzling you.
