Details

The custom-designed Orion Mars Observation Filter enhances contrast of virtually all surface features. Dielectric coatings transmit violet/blue (<505nm) and orange/red (>615nm) wavelengths where detail is rich, while blocking overbearing yellow/green (515nm-615nm) wavelengths. Polar icecaps appear more sharply defined, and differences in landscape shading are nicely resolved. Polar hazes and cloud cover become visible. The filter's high transmission makes it effective even in small telescopes. This custom-engineered Orion telescope filter comes with a protective plastic case.
