Hi,

Little introduction: I'm new to binoculars, new to cloudynights, not new to astronomy (well - some hopping using a lx90 - but I sold it). Location: Netherlands, Rotterdam

I'm about to order a BT100-45 but i was wondering, can I use filters? If so can I use them the same way as I did with the LX90 (since the filters are applied on the eyepieces).

Also, do I need a dewshield as a SCT like my old LX90 ?

Yes.

The BT-45 takes standard eyepiece sets. Any filters you are currently using screwed into the eyepieces could also be used in the eyepiece sets. And in fact, some say the best application is to use just one filter on the dominant eye.

On the dominant eye only :confused:
That sounds weird to me.. What if I'm using some fancy nebula filter or more drastic: lightpolution filters

(I updated my startpost with an extra question.)

nebula filters - one suggested. then the dominant eye picks of the nebula and the other eye picks up the stars.

light polution filters - I guess you want two.

Mmmm. sounds still weird but it makes sense

Lucky me that is it possible to stack them :) Just have to get one extra to filter out those annoying streetlights..
