Orion 1.25" Variable Polarizing Filter


Orion 1.25" Variable polarizing filter


  • Toning down of the brightness of the Moon and other planets
  • Unmasked detail and improves contrast
  • Reduced brightness and glare unmasks detail in your viewing subject and greatly improves contrast
  • The filter has an anodized aluminum cell, which threads into the barrel of any standard eyepiece
  • This versatile 1.25" Orion Variable Polarizing Telescope Filter acts like a dimmer switch for your telescope, toning down the brightness of the Moon or planets to a comfortable level and revealing more surface details.
  • It consists of two high-grade glass polarizing filters in a rotating cell that allows you to vary the amount of light transmission from 1% to 40%. Such control is highly desirable for lunar observing because the Moon's brightness varies with its phase and with the aperture and magnification of the telescope you are using. It's also a must for viewing the Moon in daylight hours.
  • Reducing the glare to an optimal level will reveal dramatically more lunar and planetary features, without significantly altering the objects' color.
  • The anodized aluminum cell threads into the barrel of any standard 1.25" telescope eyepiece
  • Includes a durable plastic storage case
