Good idea to try before you buy
Definitely buy a moon filter
Iím not a fan of LP filters
Try and buy a 10mm eye piece to observe Saturn and Jupiter over the next month or so , planetary filters work well too
Cheers

Forgot to mention, you can use the 10mm eye piece for observing DSOís as well
Also the best time to view the moon is first quarter and last quarter near the terminator ( shadow line ) which will provide great detail of craters and mountains etc...
Full moons or near full moons are too bright to observe and donít provide any contrast and therefore detail

Cheers

Hey Paul;

As a relative newbie myself, I would highly recommend a zoom lens to start with. When I got one it greatly enhanced by viewing experience. I 2nd what Martin said a moon filter is an absolute must.

Best of luck.

Nick

BTW; good luck sticking with just one scope. Been into this hobby for only 1 year have already upgraded the mount once and now looking at a 2nd scope.
