Description: This camera has been modified for astro imaging. Its original Infrared (IR) Cut Filter has been replaced. The Baader UV/IR filter replacement is a much milder UV-IR-Cut filter than the original Canon IR Cut filter and it allows the H-Alpha wavelength to pass for deep sky. It also blocks higher infrared wavelengths that cause poor focus and bloated stars with refractor telescopes and camera lenses. Because the Baader replacement filter is the same thickness as the original Canon IR cut filter, the camera's autofocus feature and optical viewfinder will continue to work as in the original un-modified camera. The camera's custom white balance feature can be used to correct color balance or an external color correcting filter can be used for regular daytime photography. A color correcting filter is not provided with the camera. An Image Stabilizer-equipped EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS zoom lens is provided with the camera body. The color of the camera body is black and is provided with its original Canon box. The Canon warranty does not apply since the camera has been opened for the modification. I provide a 90-day warranty on the modified camera.
The camera was recently purchased new by me and the modification was performed by me. The modified camera has been tested for focus and flat field.
