Canon EOS 60Da Astrophotography Digital SLRStargazers, Canon wants to sell you a new camera! The 18-megapixel Canon EOS 60Da (the “a” stands for “astrophotography”) is a modified EOS 60D digital SLR (announced Aug., 2010) with a new infrared filter that allows more infrared light through for better Hydrogen Alpha wavelength transmission. Canon says the 60Da has, “20-percent higher transmittance of Hydrogen Alpha line, or Hα wavelength, allowing astronomers to capture crisp, clear images of reddish, diffuse nebulae.” The rest of the camera is pretty much the same as the standard EOS 60D. It has a proven 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor; a high-resolution 3-inch tilt-swivel LCD display, which makes the camera comfortable to use when mounted on a tripod or telescope; and full HD video, which you can view live through a TV set via the included AV cable.
