Canon EOS 60Da. Designed specifically for astrophotography, the EOS 60Da is more sensitive to infrared light thanks to a modified low-pass filter that sits in front of the camera’s 18-megapixel CMOS sensor.
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.
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).
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.
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.
NOTE: The Canon EOS 60Da is a version of the EOS 60D is designed for astro-photography. This chamber is approximately three times more sensitive to hydrogen-alpha light (656 nm) as the EOS 60D. Photos of many reasons that reflect infrared light appear therefore redder than they really are. Moreover, since it may not be possible to get a proper color balance is not recommended normal reasons photograph with this camera. With this in mind, the camera operations are the same as the EOS 60D model so they share instruction manual.
