Very useful page on the use of Color/Planetary filters

Post by Menno555 »

I found this page and it has some very useful info on the use of color/planetary filters.
A nice graph with easy to find info on different color filters and their use for moon and planets.
And also detailed explanations below that on the most common Wratten numbers and colors, including filter transmission curves. Also with info on what kind of telescope apertures a filter works best.
