    Default Next stop, Jupiter (Filters)



    I am getting an early start on preparations for Jupiter this June. The plan is to make a special camping trip to someplace dark and explore many things, but Jupiter being the main event. I have already picked up a Baader Neodymium filter for this event. I will also be looking for something both new and in blue, say a Baader 470nm, filter.

    I hope to see the GRS on Jupiter, and maybe a little more distinction in the bands. The location is still being determined, but I am thinking a mountaintop. The scope will likely be a 5" Mak that will be joining my heard soon after the New Year, Lord Willing

    Hello Sixfalls,

    I would definitely add to your luggage the 470nm light blue filter, I am also using on Jupiter.
    With a tracked Mak, a suitable ortho would be a great addition to your eyepieces.

    Best,

    The Baader 470nm Bandpass is very good for Jupiter, probably my favourite Jupiter filter. A Wratten 82A Light Blue is useful for definition in twilight and an Astronomik UHC-E can be used to highlight cloud belts, zones and other features when the conditions aren't conducive to good seeing or there are transparency issues.
