Hello,

I have a full modified 450D camera and L-eNhance filter but when I shoot a broadband target I have difficulties.

Whats the best filters to use in mod camera for broadband targets?


UHC, L-PRO, LPS, CLS, NEODYMIUM

Should I stack UV/IR filter since it is a mod camera?


I have been reading a lot and I cant find a good answer.

Regards,

FearL0rd

A lot of people prefer not to use filters on broadband targets. The real improvements come with darker skies. The L-eNhance isn’t the best choice for broadband as you are seeing.

I know but what I have been reading the full mod camera without a filter is not good also. Should I use only an UV/IR?

I have 2 cameras a 450D Astro mod full spectrum

and Im about to buy an astro camera with AR gass Spectral Range 350-1050nm


I believe the answer would work for both.

If you have a full spectrum mod, then get a UV/IR cut filter. If you have the Ha mod, you don't need any filters for broadband targets.

I'll answer that with a solid "probably". :p

 

Not sure what astro camera you're planning on getting. A lot of them already have the UV/IR filter in front of the sensor. As to whether you can use the same filter with both cameras? Again... probably. It'll depend on the cameras and filter sizes. I know ZWO makes a Canon drop-in filter drawer that can hold 2" mounted filters.
