Aside from possibly a moon filter, I wouldn't even bother with filters. Don't even consider a solar filter for an eyepiece. That is russian roulette. Owl astronomomy has a large selection of good quality, inexpensive eyepieces. They also are currently selling a Meade barlow for $10 and have higher quality ED barlows for about $20. They also do a great job explaining the various properties of oculars.
I admit I use my filters much less than I thought I would. But then again I am primarily using my telescope for astrophotography, not for visual work.
