Subject: Review of Meade 908N Filter Sent: Friday, January 27, 2006 08:04:40 From: lib pollack (firstname.lastname@example.org) I received a Meade 908N Nebula filter for Christmas and had results very similar to those reported for the Lumicon UHC. My first test was on the Great Orion Nebula, because I had never before been able to see the structure so clearly. It was, quite simply, quite beautiful through my 125ETX at any power, using both Meade and Speers-Waler eyepieces, all the way down to 9.7mm. Yes, the nebula was still blue/gray, but the sharpness of the shapes and shadows was just as in the many photos of it in various publications. In addition, the Trapezium's stars were quite sharp and the smallest (faintest) of the four was enhanced where without the filter, it's sometimes been a bit hard to see. In summary, this filter is very competitively priced and well worth the money. Russ Pollack
