Astronomik UHC-E Canon EOS XL Full Frame Clip Filter

Astronomik UHC-E filters are ideal for those on a budget who still want to observe comets and deep sky emission nebulae in areas with heavy light pollution. Optimally equipped for smaller instruments with apertures up to 5" (125 mm), this filter obstructs unwanted light from sources such as streep lamps and background skyglow, while increasing the contrast of emission nebulae and comets.

With a 45 nm FWHM (full width at half maximum), the contrast between your target object and the night sky is not enhanced as intensely as with a UHC filter. On the other hand, a greater amount of starlight is allowed to pass through. This makes UHC-E filters better suited for smaller aperture telescopes.

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.

Astronomik UHC-E Filter Highlights

  • For imaging in severe light pollution, this filter emphasizes the contrast between deep sky emission nebulae and the skyglow background
  • Clips into Canon full frame 5D MK II, 5D MK III, and 6D DSLR cameras to recover the camera's terrestrial photography capabilities, similar to the original standard equipment filter
  • With a high 45 nm FWHM, Astronomik UHC-E filters enable comet observation when they pass a Carbon spectral line
  • 94% peak transmission
  • Transmission ranges from 480 nm to 525 nm and 645 nm and above
  • 1 mm thick glass
  • Complete protection from the impacts of scratching, aging, and high humidity is provided by multi-layer coatings
