Yes, but finding what was focused on after the longish exposure can be annoying, if it was not a good focal-point.

An alternate way suggested to me was to setup using manual focus, and then carefully slide the filter in place.

Are you speaking of the square type Cokin filter than slides into the holder? I gotta dig out my old Cokin stuff and see what thread size I have for the holder.

I suppose a threaded filter might be less jarring to screw on after one has manually focused?

Yup, it is the Cokin square slide in type. I figured this way it would fit most of my lenses, and would not cost a bundle if infrared did not work out on the 20D.
