NEX full spectrum conversion for Astro / IR?

I'm think of getting a NEX6 and having Kolari do a full spectrum conversion on it. I will use primarily for full spectrum astro photography and for IR photography (by putting IR filters on the lens) -- I already have an 850nm filter and will probably just get a 590nm filter (I like the ultra color effect).

I already have a NEX3 converted to 665nm, and it works, but I'm annoyed by the lack of a viewfinder plus I would like to add full spectrum astro photography to what I capture.

Have you done this?

Any thoughts?
