Hello guys,
Well I unintentionally converted my canon 1200d T5 into a full spectrum mod by breaking the lpf1 filter when removing it when I wanted it intact to no have star bloating on my mod. Does anyone know where I can find a replacement filter for this model camera. I've been looking everywhere with no luck . camera works but I really wanted to keep at least the ir cut filter intact to avoid said issue.
Thanks ahead everyone

Sorry to hear that! If you can't find the original replacement from Canon, an alternative is buying a clip-in UV/IR cut filter or a filter replacement by another brand (Baader comes to mind).

No need to worry; no need to look for LPF1. Use the camera as a full-Spectrum and use a pollution filter, e.g. D2... which is also a UV/IR blocker. Regards

Ok thanks for the quick reply. This lpd2 is better than a cls ccd by Astronomik? Also I've heard of the baadar option but can't find a source to purchase

Yep, no need to be frustrated, get an IR/UV for broadband, any duo- or tri-band for emission nebulae, CLS-CCD would also be a good addition.

I've have pretty good results using the L-eNhance filter from my city backyard.
