Canon EOS 60Da is special design for astrophotography, it based on the EOS 60D DSLR, the infrared-blocking filter in the low-pass filter has been modified to achieve a hydrogen-alpha (Hα) light transparency approximately 3 times higher than the EOS 60D. As a result, clearer, more crisp images of reddish, diffuse nebulae can be captured.
Canon EOS 60Da features an 18.0 MP APS-C size CMOS sensor that captures such a high level of resolution it’s easy to crop images for enlargement without concern of losing detail. A major factor in reducing noise, the CMOS sensor assures that images shot at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth even with the long exposures associated with astrophotography.
The EOS 60Da comes bundled with the new Remote Controller Adapter RA-E3 for total compatibility with Canon’s remote switch for EOS cameras with the N3-type socket, the Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3. This remote switch has a self-timer, interval timer, long exposure timer and exposure-count setting feature. The timer can be set from 1 second to 99 hours. A dial enables numerous settings to be accessed one-handed. It has an illuminated LCD panel and a 2.6ft/80cm cord. Perfect for nighttime setups, and for shooting at the sky, the Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3 is the perfect complement to the EOS 60Da’s power.
