Getting my Canon 6D modified with the Baader Mod


Recommended Posts

 I know this might be a daft question but would I be able to take semi decent narrowband shots with this modification or would I have to get a  full spectrum mod?

Great camera for astro! Here's a few of mine from various scopes. 

North America Nebula taken with a Redcat (3 hours, Optolong L-Pro filter)

Orion with a 70mm quad refractor (5 hours, IDAS D2 LPS filter)

Wide field Heart and Soul with Samyang 135 (5 hours, Optolong L-Pro filter)

Heart and Soul with 71mm refractor (4 or 5 hours, IDAS NB2 duoband filter)

My 6D has only had the first IR filter removed. Still have the anti aliasing filter so some level of IR-UV protection is present. Even so, its great for nebulae.

+1. I have a 6d, and astro cameras (asi533, asi1600). I still use the 6d - full frame sensor, lovely no noise at 3200, great FOV with lenses. You just need first filter removed.

I particularily like using it for wide view Ha mono shots like this (using L-extreme):

Thanks for all great replies and information, I really appreciate  it, it has helped me make my mind up on which mod to get.. The images are something to aim for.
