The Astronomik Clip FIlter system is a unique way to use filters with Canon EOS cameras. It allows the use of filters without the need for a filter drawer or large lens mounted filters. Additionally, if your Canon DSLR has been modified to remove the internal UV / IR filter, it allows for a replacement White Balance filter to be fitted so the camera can be used in Daylight as normal.

The CCD version of the filter is necessary if you have a fully modifed EOS camera with both standard filters removed as this will allow IR to pass. This can cause poor image quality during long exposures so must be blocked.

This H-alpha Filter is suitable for imaging of Hydrogen nebulas from observation sites with light pollution and from dark sites as well. The contrast between an object glowing at 656nm and the background is increased enormous! Due to the combination of the narrow bandwidth of 6nm and the high transmission of typically 96% the filter gives you an enormous contrast boost, as all unwanted light from other wavelengths than 656nm is blocked form UV up to the IR. This results in an extremly dark background. The FWHM of 6nm is matched to give you optimal performance with CCD and CMOS sensors with a very low dark current! The 6nm filter is the best choice if you are observing from a heavily light polluted site or if you are imaging faint objects in starcrowded regions of the milkyway. Due to the new MFR coating technique you may use one single filter on all instruments up to f/4 without a significant reduction in performance.

The Astronomik H-alpha filter MUST NOT BE USED for solar observation!

Imaging with Narrowband-Emission line Filters

If you have to observe from light polluted sites (like most of us...), imaging with Narrowband-Emission line filters is the best way to take great images, as all kinds of light pollution can be blocked very effectively. Normally an H-alpha filter should be your first step into this amazing field of astrophotography. With an Narrowband H-alpha filter you will be able to take deep and contrasty images even wih very heavy light pollution or with the full moon high up in the sky. H-Alpha can also be used as a luminance channel to enhance a standard one shot colour image as is normal with a DSLR.

Adding an OIII filters expands your imaging options, as you are able to image all greenish / blueish objects such as planetary nebulas and star forming regions. The SII filters completes the narrowband line up.

Almost all Canon system lenses (with the exception of the EF-S series) and all M42 and T2 lens adapters, can be used with the Astronomik Clip-System. The Clip-Filter System also acts as an outstanding dust shield, which prevents the possibility of dust settling on the sensor during long time exposure (The MC-Clear filter does not have a filter effect and only acts as a dust shield.)
