Tip for increased magnification - "recommended accessories"
Up to a magnification of 80x, the image is sharp and contrasting. If you want to zoom in higher, to see the moon and planets in detail, we recommend a yellow filter or the Fringe killer from Baader. These filters reduce the color error, which is normal with these very strong refractors.
