Saxon 1.25" Moon Filter For Telescope (MF004)
Retail Price $29
Saxon Moon Filter 1.25"
A must have for lunar observing in telescopes with apertures of 4 inches or larger. A full moon's light through the eyepiece of your telescope can be blinding. A moon filter acts like a pair of sunglasses! Dramatically reducing glare, brightness and lets you observe the lunar surface comfortably. Craters on the lunar surface stand out in better detail and definition.
The Saxon Moon Filter is 1.25 inch format and manufacturered from crown optical glass. Anti-reflection coatings on both sides and is mounted in a machined aluminum cell. Filter threads into the barrels of nearly all 1.25 inch eyepieces. 13% light transmission and 0.9 density.

The moon filter is darker than I thought but works ok, except that you lose a lot of colour from the moon because the filter is green. But it fits perfectly into the lens.
