I just got an EOS M to try out for planetary imaging. It looks like you can record some really nice 4K video with Magic Lantern.

 

I was wondering if anyone attempted to 3D print a clip in filter holder for the EOS M to hold the IR filter after I modify it. Something like this https://www.thingive...m/thing:2706992 except sized for the EOS M.

you can use t adapter and screw on filters there, moreover is it even possible to buy filter sheets to cut into custom filters?

I was thinking of clipping in the original filter so I can use the camera for daytime photography too.

It looks like a different shape. I will have to play with it.
