Canon 60Da Targets Astrophotographers, Comes with Modified Infrared Filter

Now you can capture the a glimpse of the ever expanding universe, thanks to canon’s new EOS 60d model. A modified version of the Canon EOS 60D, this higher-end 18-megapixel shooter is geared for astrophotograpy, coming equipped with an infrared filter so it doesn’t screen out ‘hydrogen-alpha’ light, a deep-red 656.28 nanometer wavelength of light produced by hydrogen atoms. Yes it sounds geeky but if you’re into the astro-type of things, you’ll understand this. The last camera of this kind from Canon was the EOS 20Da, but the newer 60Da has seen a jump from 8 megapixels to 18 megapixels, and an astounding maximum ISO of 6400, extendable up to 12,800. Now that’s one great camera for your large prints of the universe and beyond.
