(b) #21 Orange (46% Transmission) - to enhance detail in polar regions of Jupiter and Saturn, and sharpens edge detail of maria areas of Mars. (c) #38A Dark Blue (17% Transmission) - Popular for the study of Jupiter, strongly rejects orange and red spectra for greater cloud belt and Red Spot contrast. Also for general detail on Mars, Saturn and Venus. (d) #56 Light Green (53% Transmission) - excellent for Mars' polar ice caps and yellow-tinted dust storms, and is also for increasing red and blue features on Jupiter and lunar contrast.
