Astronomik ProPlanet 642 IR-Pass EOS XL Clip Filter


The most recent addition to the Astronomik ProPlanet IR-pass filter family, the ProPlanet 642 BP facilitates an extensive array of applications for daytime IR photography, high resolution Moon and planetary imaging, and taking awe-inspiring photos of deep sky targets in the H-Alpha portion of the spectrum when used for astro-imaging.

This filter offers a 200 nm spectral window between 642 nm and 842 nm. Contrary to the other two ProPlanet filters carried by Astronomik, the longer infrared is blocked by the P642. Together with ProPlanet 742 and 807 filters, Astronomik is now giving users three options for their IR-imaging needs. For best imaging, the ProPlanet 642 will often be the optimal selection.

Daylight IR-Imaging:

  • High contrast images feature superb color rendition
  • Transparent images with "wood effect"
  • No longer IR hot spot
  • Short exposure times similar to regular VIS-imaging
  • Ideally suited for infrared videos


High Resolution Lunar & Planetary Imaging:

  • Short exposure times
  • Efficient decrease in seeing
  • Optimized contrast
  • Longer IR is blocked to remove ghosting and facilitate maximum sharpness


Deep-Sky Astrophotography of H-Alpha Regions:

  • Excellent 656 nm H-Alpha line transmission
  • Approximately 40 nm FWHM with astro-modified DSLR cameras
  • Spectacular contrast in moonlight or with severe light pollution
  • Reasonably priced filter for casual H-Alpha imagers
  • Simple focusing enabled by the combination of camera display and LiveView

Astronomik Full Frame Clip Filter System


Astronomik's proprietary Clip-Filter system is made of black anodized aluminum and laser-cut on the most up-to-date machinery. EOS XL full frame clip filters are designed to work with Canon DSLR cameras with full format bodies such as the 5D Mk II and 5D Mk III. This Clip-Filter can be inserted into the Canon EOS camera body using only your fingers in a matter of seconds. Removal is also quick and easy. No tools or adjustments needed and all lens operations like focus, screen, and image stabilization, continue to function normally! In addition, during long exposures, Astronomik's Clip-Filter system keeps dust at bay so it doesn't gather on your sensor. Unfortunately this filter is not compatible with the Canon EOS 6D Mk II.
