Works for ALL 1.25" eyepieces (all brands, makes, types). Cheap plastic, but does what it's supposed to do.

This works with ALL 1.25" eyepieces (all brands, makes, types - at least made within the last couple of decades or so...). No need to ask for your particular telescope, the silver tube at the bottom of 1.25" eyepieces has a thread where you fit filters. I was puzzled by some people claiming it does not fit the "Travel Scope" eyepieces and could not figure out what they mean (see image bellow, the filter threaded on one of my Travel Scope's original eyepieces). Then I noticed someone answering a question mentioning that it won't fit because the eyepiece instead of a thread has only a "rubber flange". Well, it seems he is trying to fit the filter on the top part of the eyepiece!
So, it does what it is supposed to do, it darkens the moon, although it gives it a greenish tint which I don't particularly like, but most moon filters give a color tint anyway. It is a poorly made plastic that holds the filter, so they could not have been cheaper when making this, and it's a shame, but I can't say it will break easily or anything like that.
Oh, don't just go out and buy a moon filter if you don't actually need it - make sure the glare of the moon does bother you first. And a little hint: sunglasses also work, just remember to take them off after viewing the moon ;)
