DSLR Astro Conversion Filter for Canon EOS 300D
Canon Digital SLR cameras are amongst the most popular cameras for astro-imaging. They do not require a computer, are very sensitive and have high resolution.
The cameras do have one major drawback for astro-imaging though. The original IR cut filter installed has poor transmission of the important H-Alpha line. Nebulae are consequently difficult to photograph with a standard camera.
Baader have made an IR cut filter that replaces the standard internal Canon filter.
This filter has high transmission of the H-Alpha line and eliminates the cameras’ major disadvantage for astro-imaging.
It is recommended for best performance to install the filter with the coated (pinkish) side facing out.
Please note that the filter is a slightly different size to the ‘factory’ filter but this in intentional.
