The Astronomik OWB (Original White Balance) filter shifts the complete spectrum of a converted DSLR in such a manner that the camera will not be exclusively usable for Astrophotography. Therefore the decision, which in former times had to be made, was to 'victimize' a DSLR in order to exclusively use it for astronomical tasks or accept the lower sensitivity on the red end of the spectrum. This would ender it useless for daylight photography. By using this Clip FIlter you can now use a modified camera in daylight!

The Astronomik OWB EOS Clip filter fits in all Canon cameras of the type series 20D(a)-50D, 300D-550D and 1000D.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Main Use

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DSLR cameras which have been converted for astronomical use by removing the inbuilt IR-filter or by substituting it with a filter with greater range for H-alpha, have a white balance that made them unable for 'terrestrial' purpose. The spectral sensitivity of the DSLR will be changed by an OWB-Filter to the former range. In other words: The OWB pretends to be the conventional built-in filter!
