  • Wow, an Astronomik 12nm H-Alpha filter for your Canon Full-Frame (i.e., 5D, 6D) EOS camera that clips in above the mirror! All normal functions of your EOS camera will be unaffected... focus, image stabilization, etc.
  • The Astronomik H-Alpha 12nm Filter comes formatted as a Canon EOS Clip and fits most Canon EOS cameras that have full-frame sensors.
  • Black anodized aluminum and laser-cut on state-of-the-art modern machines.
  • The Astronomik H-Alpha 12nm Filter has a transmission of up to 99%.
  • The full width at half-maximum (FWHM) of 12nm is optimized for the use with common CCD cameras and allows the use of very fast optics.
  • The Astronomik H-Alpha Filter may NOT be used for solar observation.

Astronomik H-Alpha 12nm CCD Filter - Canon EOS Full Frame XL Clip

The Astronomik H-alpha filter is a narrow band filter for CCD photography. The filter lets the H-alpha light of emission nebulae pass and blocks nearly the whole remainder of the spectrum where the CCD is sensitive.

The full width at half-maximum (FWHM) of 12nm is optimized for the use with common CCD cameras and allows the use of very fast optics. It should be noted that the filter has a transmission of up to 99%. Another advantage of the 12nm filters is the availability of guiding stars for cameras with a built-in-autoguider (SBIG). If you use a very strong filter like our 6nm filter you often won’t find a usable guidestar.

The range of application extends from 1:2.8 to 1:15. Transmission losses and chromatic distortions, which arise with other filters, only occur with Astronomik filters when extremely bright aperture ratios of 1:2 and more come into play.

The Astronomik H-alpha-CCD (12nm version) increases the contrast between objects, in this case between the H-alpha emission line and the skyglow background. Our Astronomik H-alpha-CCD (12nm version) completely suppresses the emission lines of artificial lighting (mercury (Hg) and sodium (Na)) and skyglow. When using the OIII CCD and the SII-CCD filters you can obtain three-color images of emission line objects (gas nebulae) from locations with very strong light pollution. To do so, you would take an image in three different wavelengths, select each one as a color-channel in Photoshop and paste them together as a color image. The Astronomik H-Alpha filter may NOT be used for solar observation. If you plan to create color images from emission line data, our CLS-CCD filter is a great choice for the Luminance channel.

About the Astronomik XL Clip-Filter System....

The patented Astronomik Clip-Filter System for Canon full-frame cameras is black anodized aluminum and laser-cut on state-of-the-art modern machines. It can be inserted within seconds directly into any full-frame (5D and 6D, for example) EOS camera body. There are no changes necessary and all lens functions (focus, screen, image stabilization) remain functional! If you have a EOS Rebel, or other Canon APS-C sized camera body, you should purchase the standard-sized Astronomik H-Alpha 12nm EOS Clip filter instead.

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.)
