In theory youíre 100% right. The stock filters in your camera should take care of the I/R and U/V. I guess, without seeing the exact transmission lines of those filters itís up for debate as to how well they work given they were designed for terrestrial photography where most of the light they are designed to cut out isnít direct light ie. Looking at our star ? All I can use is my experience. I did use the two different filters on my unmodded 350d before I got my modified version and I found that the imaging filter did significantly reduce star bloat.
