Canon is set to release a specialized version of its popular EOS 60D D-SLR optimized for astrophotographers. The EOS 60Da uses the same 18-megapixel APS-C image sensor found in 60D, a substantial improvement over Canon’s last astrocamera, the 8.2-megapixel EOS 20Da. The Image sensor has been fine-tuned for extra sensitivity to hydrogen-alpha wavelengths and uses a modified infrared sensor, making it possible to capture images of red hydrogen nebulae and other diffuse celestial objects. Other enhancements to the 60D include an improved version of its 3-inch Clear View LCD with more than 1 million dots of resolution and a flip-out Vari-angle screen. The camera is capable of ISO speeds of up to 6400 in standard shooting mode, with a 12800 option for shots that require very short shutter speeds. The EOS 60Da retails for $1,499 without a lens and will be available for purchase later this month.
