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.
