Meade RG 880 - a vintage classic

Posted By Lawrence Johnson

Hello -- I am new to Astromart. I have finally dusted off my Meade Research Grade 880 telescope. Take a look at it in the classified section. I know little about the capabilities of this telescope, though I have been told that it represents the "state of the art" at the time that it was produced. I have been able to see the rings of Saturn and the moons of Jupiter from by back yard (not much light contamination). Looking at the moon requires the use of sun glasses. It there a filter that would be appropriate for looking at the moon? Any suggestions will be warmly received.
