I decided to replace the Canon IR cut filter with a clear glass window from Edmunds Scientific Optics. The window is coated on both sides and is close to the same thickness of the Canon filter. With the addition of a .1mm spacer, the focus of the modified camera is returned to that of the original and the camera Auto Focus works.
The new breed of digital SLR cameras from Canon are highly regarded for use in the somewhat demanding task of astronomical imaging. While they cannot go as deep as most of the dedicated, CCD-based astronomical imaging systems and are limited to 12-bit signal resolution, they can produce amazing results
This tutorial will show you how to disassemble a Canon A540 or A530 to the sensor to remove the ir cut filter.
A commonly reported problem with the FZ5 is the lens becoming stuck in one position. This is because the cogs that drive it are made of plastic and the mounting for the lens motor is a bit flimsy.
Describes the construction and use of serial port based control cables for computerized long exposure control of Canon digital SLRs. The motivation behind the development of the control cables is in astronomical imaging of DSOs, where DSLR exposures are typically required in the 5 to 15 minute range.
You got yourself a brand new all-in-one scanner, printer, fax, copier machine, so what are you going to do with your old flatbed scanner. Well I will show you a couple of things you might just be brave enough to try, all with no or little cost, depending what you have lying around the house.
