Astronomik CLS CCD Clip Filter Canon APSC
CLS CCD Clip Filter for Canon APSC Sensor
The Astronomik Broadband Clip-Filter for Canon EOS APS-C cameras is used for deep-sky photography in moderately light polluted areas and can be inserted into the camera body within seconds.
Do you own a Canon EOS digital camera for astro-imaging? Then you have surely encountered the following problems:
♦ Large filters for large camera lens objectives are very expensive.
♦ If you place a filter holder between your camera body and lens, you loose the ability to focus to infinity.
♦ With long exposure times, your cameras sensor chip is exposed to more dust.
With the Astronomik Clip-Filter System you can take care of all of these problems at once!
The patented Astronomik Clip-Filters are made of black anodized aluminum and laser-cut on state-of-the-art machines. They can be inserted within seconds directly into the EOS camera body. There are no changes necessary and all lens functions (focus, screen, image stabilization) remain operational!
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-Filter 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.)
The CLS-CCD Filter enhances the contrast between astronomical objects and the background. Due to the wider transmission curve compared to UHC filters, a greater amount of light will pass the filter. Stars will be less dimmed. This filter has been optimized to block as much spurious light as possible and simultaneously provide the best performance for 'useful' light. A good filter for DSLR-, CCD- and film b/w-photography as well as observation of deep-sky-objects with telescopes or photo lenses of all aperture f/3 and above.
