Celestron's Moon Filters are economical eyepiece filters for reducing the brightness of the moon and improving contrast, so greater detail can be observed on the lunar surface. The clear aperture is 21mm for the 1¼" filter. Transmission is about 18%.
1¼" Moon Filter [94119-A]
Eyepiece filters are an invaluable aid in lunar and planetary observing. They reduce glare and light scattering, increase contrast through selective filtration, increase definition and resolution, reduce irradiation and lessen eye fatigue. Celestron's filters are made of high quality, solid plane parallel glass with excellent homogeneity. They're anti-reflection coated to prevent glaring and ghosting. All eyepiece filters are threaded to fit Celestron's, and most other manufacturer's, 1¼" eyepieces, and offer a full 26mm clear aperture. Celestron filters are mounted in black anodized aluminum cells with the Kodak Wratten Series Number individually engraved, and come with a plastic case for safe storage. The cells of each filter are double-threaded, so they can be stacked (piggybacked) in various combinations. This allows you to create different color combinations and transmission characteristics, or to have the same color characteristic, but with a lower transmission. When stacking color filters, the effective transmission of the combination you create is equal to the product of the spectral transmission of each of the filters used.
The effectiveness of the filters depends on several factors, including: the aperture and focal length of the telescope, the magnification being used, and seeing conditions.

Not what I wanted...
I am disappointed.

The optics perform as needed. However, the build quality is very poor. The lens is housed in plastic and not a hard dense plastic, either. Threading soft plastic to metal does not work well especially when the threads are tight as they are on scopes. You can see in the pics the plastic mold seems are not cleaned up. This adds to the difficulty of threading it onto an eyepiece. The threads on the filter will undoubtedly strip. Because of this I cannot recommend it.
I am disappointed.
Brings out detail on the moon.
Works well. Has plastic threads I worry about stripping
