Overview

 

Compact, lightweight Mirrorless digital camera professionally Astro-Converted for increased 4X H-alpha sensitivity and 6X Sulfur II sensitivity with a generous APS-C sensor for about half the price of a Color Cooled Camera with the same sensor size. The stock UV/IR blocking sensor filter is replaced by the Baader Luminance UV/IR blocking filter with Enhanced Spectrum (Visible + H-alpha + Sulfur II). User and budget friendly for aspiring astrophotographers expecting an easy way to capture images of deep reddish nebulae structures.

 

 

 Straightforward Camera Control and Focus process

  

The exposures timing remote control is simply doable with a remote shutter release device or with Canon EOS Utility Free Software or Astrophotography data capture software like Backyard EOS or Astrophotography tool. Subject framing and perfect focus procedure can also be done easily with or without focus masks over Live View digital zoom using the camera’s 180 degrees tilt LCD touchscreen, and also with Canon EOS Utility Free Software or with the mentioned 3rd party software when the camera is connected to a computer.

 

 

Shorter body flange back focus

  

 

The EF-M Lens Mount features a 47mm diameter and a short 18mm flange back focus distance to the sensor surface. Compared to a DSLR, the shorter flange back focus distance to sensor allows to fit accessories like filter sliders, Off-Axis Guiders or Camera Angle Adjusters within the typical 55mm imaging correctors’ back focus.

 

 

 Great for imaging with Hyperstar/Celestron RASA Astrographs

  

Being an APS-C mirrorless camera, its small body cause significantly less light obstruction in Hyperstar configuration compared to a DSLR, making it suitable for Hyperstar C8/C9.25/C11/C14 SCT and RASA 11/36 imaging setups. Additionally, when imaging at f/3 or faster focal ratios, the focal point and sensor even illumination is critical, and compared to a DSLR there is no mirror chamber and no shadow projected from the mirror on the sensor surface. With such Ultra-Fast optics, exposures of 30 to 60 seconds single frames are enough and thermal noise is not an issue.

 

Celestron RASA 8 Owners: Due to the protruding hand grip on the camera body, the Canon EOS M6 Mark II is not compatible with Celestron RASA 8 Astrograph.

 

 Best EAA Experience 

 

Wifi-Capable feature will facilitate EAA (Electronically-Assisted Astronomy or Video-Astronomy) sessions with smartphones or tablets through the Free Canon Camera Connect App taking single frames shots. Broadcast to the entire 3rd Planet with your smartphone or tablet screen recordings/sharing through Zoom Cloud Meetings App or posting in social media platforms. With desktop or laptop computers, total intervalometer control is possible with the Wifi connection and Canon EOS Utility Free Software in Bulb mode for a completely wireless setup experience (No power/data cables).

 

 

Suitable for casual photography

 

 

This Astro-Converted camera can still be used for casual daylight photography setting the custom white balance with an 18% gray card shot, and an original white balance filter is not needed. For accurate color balance on portrait pictures or product pictures, the stock version or a OWB filter must be used.
