Astronomik ProPlanet 642 BP IR-Pass Filter - EOS M Clip

Please Note : The "M" series of Astronomik filters are designed to work with the new mirrorless cameras from Canon.

The ProPlanet 642 BP is the most recent addition to Astronomik's ProPlanet IR-pass filter family. This filter offers a wide assortment of applications for daytime IR photography, high resolution imaging of the Moon and planets, and capturing gorgeous deep sky images of objects in H-alpha regions when used for astro-imaging.

The P642 IR-Pass Filter offers a 200 nm spectral window between 642 nm and 842 nm. As opposed to the other two Astronomik ProPlanet filters, the P642 blocks the longer infrared. Astronomik is now providing users with three separate options for their IR-imaging needs, this P642 filter as well as their other two ProPlanet filters, the 742 and 807. For best imaging, the ProPlanet 642 will frequently be the ideal choice.

Daylight IR-Imaging:

  • Images have high contrast and superb color presentation
  • Clear "wood effect" images
  • No longer IR hot spot
  • Short exposure times nearly identical to regular VIS-imaging
  • An optimal fit for Infrared videos

High Resolution Lunar & Planetary Imaging:

  • Short exposure times
  • Satisfactory seeing reduction
  • Enhanced contrast
  • Longer IR obstruction removes ghosting and allows peak sharpness

Deep-Sky Astrophotography of H-Alpha Regions:

  • Best H-Alpha line transmission at 656 nm
  • Approximately 40 nm FWHM with astro-modified Digital SLR cameras
  • Amazing contrast even under the light of the Moon or in heavy light pollution
  • Priced reasonably for H-Alpha imaging amateurs
  • Camera display coupled with LiveView allows easy focusing

Technical Specifications

  • For wavelengths in the 642 nm to 842 nm range, transmission is over 96%
  • Wavelengths from 350 nm to 630 nm are obstructed
  • Parfocal with all other Astronomik filters
  • 1 mm glass thickness
  • Offers complete insulation from the effects of scratching, aging, and high humidity
  • This filter is diffraction limited and thus will not lessen your telescope's optical performance
  • Astronomik filters arrive in a durable plastic filter container of superior quality
  • Made in Germany, a country recognized for their supreme quality optics!

Astronomik EOS M Clip Filter System

Made from black anodized aluminum and laser-cut on state-of-the-art machines, Astronomik's unique Clip-Filter system can be placed directly into the camera body of Canon EOS M series M1, M10, M3, M5, M6, and M50 models in only seconds. Adjustments are not needed, and all lens functions such as focus, screen, and image stabilization, stay operational! This EOS M Clip-Filter system is also suitable for use with all currently known EF-M lenses, along with all other lenses with EF and EF-S bayonets by using an adapter. This system also serves as a suitable dust shield, preventing dust from gathering on your sensor when taking long exposures.
