Canon 60Da Introduced for Astrophotography

Canon EOS 60Da

The Canon 60Da is a new version of the popular 60D that is specifically designed for astrophography.  The 60Da features a modified infrared filter and a low-noise sensor with heightened hydrogen-alpha sensitivity, which allows the camera to better capture “‘red hydrogen emission’ nebulae and other cosmic phenomena.”

The Canon 60Da is priced at $1499 and comes with the RA-E3 Remote Controller Adapter and an AC power adapter to accomodate long exposures.  The 60Da is available at B&H Photo and other select Canon dealers.
