Waiting List

  • The Astronomik OWB (Original White Balance) Type 3 Filter is designed for Canon EOS full frame digital SLR cameras that have been modified for astronomy imaging.
  • The OWB Type 3 Filter restores the ability of the camera to be used for terrestrial photography, like the original standard equipment filter.
  • Just like all Astronomik filters, the Original White Balance filter for Canon Full Frame Cameras is highly resistant to scratches, moisture or degradation due to aging.


Astronomik OWB (Original White Balance) Filter - Type 3
Clip for Converted Canon EOS XL Full Frame Cameras

The Astronomik OWB (Original White Balance) filter shifts the spectrum of a converted DSLR so that it can be used for terrestrial photography again. The OWB EOS XL Clip filter fits in all Canon full frame cameras, like the 5D or 6D.

DSLR cameras which have been converted for astronomical use by removing the built-in IR-filter or by substituting it with a filter with greater range for H-alpha, end up with a white balance that makes unusable for 'terrestrial' purposes. In order to restore the proper spectral sensitivity of the DSLR, just add the Astronomik OWB clip filter. Now you can leave the filter in for terrestrial use and remove it for astrophotography!

About the Astronomik Clip-Filter System....

The patented Astronomik Clip-Filter System is black anodized aluminum and laser-cut on state-of-the-art modern machines. It can be inserted within seconds directly into the EOS full frame camera body. There are no changes necessary and all lens functions (focus, screen, image stabilization) remain functional!

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.)
