The Canon EOS 60Da Digital SLR camera is specifically designed for astrophotography and is based on the highly specified Canon 60D and 20Da cameras. The Canon 60Da features a modified low-pass filter with increased hydrogen-alpha sensitivity that is approximately three times higher than that of a normal DSLR camera. The IR filter sits in front of the 18 megapixel CMOS sensor and makes it possible for astronomers and hobbyists to capture light wavelengths emitted by deep space gasses that are normally blocked by the filters in standard DSLRs, an essential modification to allow users to capture images of nebulae (gas clouds) in space. The Canon 60Da is equipped with a versatile 3.0” vari-angle LCD, a powerful DIGIC 4 imaging processor and an extendable ISO range of up to 12,800, the same features found in the Canon 60D. The Canon EOS 60Da Digital SLR is designed to provide a combination of high resolution, low noise and creative flexibility when shooting stars and deep space gases. More
Optical characteristics suited to astrophotography
High image quality and lower noise technology based on the 60D
Live View shooting with the Vari-angle Clear View LCD monitor
Extensive lens selection and the EOS System
Sensitivity to long-wavelength light
Based on the popular EOS 60D camera, the EOS 60Da features enhanced sensitivity to H-a long-wavelength light, making it ideal for applications in astronomy. A modified low-pass optical filter improves recording of infrared phenomena, such as diffuse nebulae, by approximately three times compared to EOS 60D.
Capture high-resolution photographs that are full of detail. An 18-megapixel CMOS sensor works with a 14-bit DIGIC 4 image processor to deliver images that are low in noise, even when shooting with long exposures or at high ISO sensitivity (max ISO 6400, expandable to ISO 12,800).
Compose, focus and shoot from any angle with a Vari-angle 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 Clear View LCD screen, even with the camera attached to a telescope.
Time lapse shooting
For time-lapse shooting, the EOS 60Da is compatible with the optional TC-80N3 remote control (using the supplied RA-E3 adaptor). Remote camera control and tethered shooting is possible from any PC or Mac computer using the supplied EOS Utility software.
