SET # 3 (1.25")( # 8 Light Yellow, # 21 Orange, # 38A Dark Blue, 58A Light Green )

# 8 Light Yellow (83% transmission): Useful in observing red and orange-colored phenomena in the belts of Jupiter and in enhancing the level of observable detail of small orange-red zonal features within the belts of the planet. Increases contrast of maria on Mars. Can result in improved resolution of dusky detail on Uranus and Neptune in instruments of 10" aperture and larger. A popular filter for the enhancement of lunar features, particularly in telescopes of 8" aperture and smaller.

# 21 Orange (46% transmission): Reduces or blocks transmission of blue-green wavelengths. Use on Jupiter and Saturn to enhance detail in the belts and polar regions. Sharpens boundaries between yellow-orange areas and blue-green regions on Mars, resulting in a darkening of edge-detail in the maria.

# 38A Dark Blue (17% transmission): A popular filter for the study of Jupiters disc, owing to the filters strong rejection of orange and red wavelengths. Increases contrast between the reddish belt structures and enhances detail of the Red Spot. Also useful for the study of isolated phenomena, such as dust storms, on Mars, as well as the belt structure of Saturn. Increases contrast of subtle cloud markings on Venus.

# 58A Light Green (53% transmission): Excellent for the observation of Martian polar ice caps as well as yellow-tinted dust storms on the Martian surface. Increases contrast of the red and blue regions in Jupiters atmosphere as well as in the cloud belts. Also useful for enhancing lunar detail.

By faith we understand that the universe was created by God's command, so that what is seen has been made from things that are not visible
