Modified 450D’s First Light

With the built-in filter removed and replaced with a Baader UV-IR filter, the camera now has an optimized sensitivity to red, particularly, to H-alpha light. H-alpha light is perceived by the naked eye as deep red hue. It is important to astrophotographers because certain types of nebula emit light at this wavelength.
