I don't have the time, dark skies or observing site to warrant using more than a dslr for astro imaging and its substantial cost. The alternative was getting the chip on Canon 750d modified and by a reputable organisation, and it was the best decision in my imaging progress. No problems and the conversion done to very high standards. Despite heavily light polluted skies I can now pick up a Hα signal. The best results require a fair bit of processing, but use a CLS filter or Hα clip filter and it gets a lot easier. Images with 750d, Skywatcher Esprit 80ed f5/400, AVX mount, exposures typically 3-5 minutes iso 1600, greyscale with Hα filter from colour. The downside is the expense, including sending a camera insured to Germany. The conversion was done in about a week.
As specified in the technical data the inner diameter is 47,5mm. There is no thread inside, the thread is just like a baffle against straylight.. There is no need to attach filters in this place because its part of the UFC system and the fitlers are placed in UFC filter holders

Please click on one of the filter sizes and scroll down to "technical specifications". When you click on that, you will find the size and thickness of the filter. The bandwith is shown in a graphic on the top left of the page, in the image gallery
