The Orion UltraBlock NB Eyepiece Filter is for deep-sky observers in highly light-polluted areas. This 1.25" filter blocks all forms of light pollution allowing you to see fainter deep-sky objects than you would with wideband filters or unfiltered.
For deep sky observing in light-polluted areas this 1.25" Orion SkyGlow Broadband Telescope filter is perfect. It blocks the most common wavelengths of light pollution for increased contrast and better views.
If you only get one book to go along with your new telescope, make sure it's Turn Left at Orion! The perfect companion guide, it includes maps to nearly 100 of the best objects, and drawings depicting what they will look like through your telescope.
