ND filter Phases of the Moon New Moon to First Quarter If you understand the basic astronomical factors such as phase, libration and nutation affecting the visibility of features on the Moon, you are ready to start learning individual features. Perhaps the most obvious plan for taking a first tour is to harness the lunar phases themselves by following the terminator across the Moon’s face during the course of a month. 40 3 Observing the Moon with Filters It is easier to note a selection of some of the most conspicuous lunar features as you makes progress in your observations.

Quality eyepieces married to a good telescope of reasonable aperture can be used to make important observations of Solar System objects, the Moon and some deep sky objects, too.

Conclusion It is hoped that readers are convinced not to ignore the strange colored filters that may accompany their telescopes. If you don’t yet have colored filters then it is recommended getting at least a selection of them from the earlier list, as they do proffer a new experience when gazing at the Moon or planets.

However, to bring out the best of the lunar surface, much more than merely reducing the light input into your telescope is necessary.
