Camera modification for astro imaging Updated on:  04 Mar 2023

 

Original internal low pass filter (LPF) blocks about 75% of H-Alpha light, and so this filter needs to be removed such that more H-Alpha light can be captured.

 

Types of modification:

Astro imaging ... Remove LPF and replace with Baader ACF/BCF (APS-C/FF) or Astronomik L-3 (FF) filter, keeping or removing front dust cleaning filter (if any). BCF/L-3 filter for blocking UV/IR, but not H-alpha.

Full spetrum ... Remove LPF / dust cleaning filter. If needed, install Astronomik clear filter (FF only) to minimize infinity focusing issues while using camera lens.
