Camera mod successful!

Yes!! I've done it, muwaaahaaahaahaaaaa! Below is a shot of the remnants from the offending filter...

Many thanks to Gary Honis and his great instructions from which I was able to successfully remove the IR cut filter from the Canon 450D in just under 3 hours. As I only intend to use this camera with telescopes, I decided to just remove it outright. If certain shots require some filtering, there are always premium front-mounted filters available.

Busy making new flats and master dark period is in a week or so.
