Ususally they screw into the eyepiece (the opposite end from the bit you look into).

btw, Meade have a special filter set for the ETX-70, which appear `lighter` than regular filters. Is this because regular filters would be too dark for a 70mm scope?

I thought that but then read something which said it's dangerous if you have them in the wrong place, something to do with the lens so I just thought I'd check...

Thanks :wink:

They are dangerous if you use them on the wrong target, i.e the SUN!!
