comment How to view Jupiter with 4.5" Newtonian Reflector
Use either the Moon filter or yellow / green / blue color filters for Jupiter. And if you also have a polarizing filter (often found in filter sets) then you could try that too, or even two of them as a makeshift variable polarizer (by rotating them), or a combination of a few of the filters you have if they're of decent quality and not damaged. Make sure they're cleaned tho. Old filters can gather a patina of dust if not properly stored since they do tend to be made of electrostatic materials that attract dust. Use silk cloth / cotton pads and isopropyl alcohol if you need to do that.
