You need to remove the ir/uv-cut filter that is in front of your sensor inside your camera.
Most sensors are capable of capturing more frequencies of light then the human eye.

Therefore manufacturers place this filter to not get interfering light that is not actually visible.

Search for "removing hotmirror + [your camera model]" to see how this is done.

Hi,
I just got a 600D with ML on it.
I am into astrophotography, but I'd like to hear from you how you did remove the IR filter from your 600D as I'd like to do it too.
Also, is risky for the sensor once the IR removed if I use the camera for normal daylight photos or is the camera then "doomed/locked" to night photos only ?

Thanks
Mathieu
