Overview

 

Mid-level and unexpensive DSLR camera professionally Astro-Converted for increased 4X H-alpha sensitivity and 6X Sulfur II sensitivity with a generous APS-C sensor for about 1/5th the price of a Color Cooled Camera with the same sensor size. The stock UV/IR blocking sensor filter is removed and the Low Pass Anti-Aliasing filter is preserved with Enhanced Spectrum bandpass (Visible + H-alpha + Sulfur II). User and budget friendly for aspiring astrophotographers expecting an easy way to capture images of deep reddish nebulae structures. Canon released in 2012 the 60Da variant for astrophotography enthusiasts. 

Condition: Used excellent condition body with minor signs of cosmetic wear and shutter count below 30K. 

 

Straightforward Camera Control and Focus process

 

The exposures timing remote control is simply doable with Canon EOS Utility Free Software or Astrophotography data capture software like Backyard EOS or Astrophotography tool. Subject framing and perfect focus procedure can also be done easily with or without focus masks over Live View digital zoom using the camera’s Vari-angle LCD touchscreen, and also with Canon EOS Utility Free Software or with the mentioned 3rd party software when the camera is connected to a computer.

  

Suitable for casual photography

 

 

This Astro-Converted camera can still be used for casual daylight photography setting the custom white balance with an 18% gray card shot or with Adobe Camera Raw white balance presets and an original white balance filter is not mandatory. For accurate color balance on portrait pictures or product pictures, the stock version or a OWB filter must be used.  

 

**Out of focus NIR: With the Enhanced Spectrum modified camera, depending on the lens, telescope or optical corrector used, some imagers might experience a little bit bloated stars due to the near infrared light slightly out of focus when a refractive optical system does not have at least one ED (Extra-Low Dispersion glass) element. This chromatic aberration could be mitigated with post processing correction using computer software.

Great company!

Great company. Very very responsive and willing to answer any questions you might have. I ordered at a very busy time of year and yet they were responsive with explaining where I was at in line to receive my camera. My teenage son absolutely loves it. He uses this more than any gaming console which I can’t complain about.
