Hi All

 

Can you point me in the right direction/filter?

 

I picked up a used Canon 450D camera body and did the ir filter removal. But have not replaced it with anything, not even a clear lens.

 

I am sure I would benefit from some kind filter in there but am at a loss as to what?   Being used for deep space AP.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Jeff

It sounds like you have done the "full-spectrum" mod to your camera.  I suggest the Astronomik CLS-CCD clip-in filter.

Hi,

 

I use the 450D with the Optolong L-Pro for most kinds of deep-space RGB. This does not mess up the colors a lot but improves the visibility and contrast. My favorite for that camera.

 

I do also have the Astronomic CLS-CCD, which filters out even more light-pollution, but gives a kind of strong red level to the image.

 

Regarding narrowband, my favorite is the Astronomic Ha 12nm. Works really good in oder to detail out the structure of many nebulae like Heart Nebula, Orion Nebula or North America Nebula.

 

All 3 filters are clip-in filters for the Canon. Just make sure to get the „new“ Optolong L-Pro. This has the 2 noses for clipping it into to the cam. The „old one“ was kind of stiff and tended to bend itself on putting it in.

 

Regards,

Sven
