Meade Series 4000 Broadband
Optics: I have tried to use this filter 15-20 times, but it just doesn't seem to do anything positive for the image. In particular, on almost every target, it seems to equally eliminate both background light and image. The ONLY object that seemed to benefit from it was the Orion nebula, where you could see very slightly extended nebulosity and very slightly more detail. The effect was sufficiently subtle that it might have been my brain trying to rationalize me wasting 130 bucks on this thing. For this latter one-time possible benefit, I give it a 1 for optical quality rather than a zero.

Value: None.
