Astronomik Clip-Filter for the mirrorless full format cameras EOS R and RP
The new clip filters can be used with all lenses on the camera body without any modifications.
The clip filters are optimized for use with normal camera lenses and telescopes.
All Astronomik filters are now also available as Clip filters EOS R!
The Astronomik CLS-CCD is our advice as an ideal “all-round filter”: The CLS-CCD largely suppresses artificial light pollution and enables deep, long-exposures even from locations with strong light pollution while giving your natural colors!
Beside the CLS-CCD the Astronomik emission-line filters H-alpha, SII and OIII with 12nm and 6nm FWHM are available.
The Astronomik ProPlanet 642 BP, 742 and 807 give the infrared photographer a wide range of filters at his disposal. The UV+IR blockers L-1, L-2 and L-3 complete the family.

It would be good if they did these as a drop-in for the EF->RF Filter adaptor
Would be good as additional product.

But if you use the body directly on telescope there is no use/need of an adaptor.
And these filters are designed for that purpose: body + telescope
And - of course - directly with RF lenses ;)

The issue is they state that at their site that the filters have to be used with lenses f/3.0 or more. So I guess a f/2.8 would be OK but I want to use my Sigma 14mm 1.8. I guess I will have to mail them and ask for details. Anyway I have time until summer (when the milky way will be visible).

im not familiar with these filters, are these used to make an IR camera functional for typical photography or something else?

Most of them do the opposite thing, blocking some parts of the visible spectrum to make the faint signals from deep sky objects stand out more in the image.

But they are all different, and they are just filters. This is just a Form factor, so they can do what ever you want. The article above mentions a UV and IR blocking filter, I guess that is indeed meant to make a full spectrum modified model more usable for regular photography.

The ones mentioned in the initial post eliminate a part of light pollution so as to facilitate astrophotography.
