CanonCanon EOS 60Da DSLR camera for Astronomy Enthusiasts : Canon introduced the Canon EOS 60Da Digital SLR Camera, a long-awaited successor to the Canon EOS 20Da that is optimized for astrophotography. This Digital SLR caters to astronomers and hobbyists who enjoy capturing the beauty of the night sky by offering a modified infrared filter and a low-noise sensor with heightened hydrogen-alpha sensitivity. These modifications allow the Canon EOS 60Da camera to capture magnificent photographs of 'red hydrogen emission' nebulae and other cosmic phenomena.

Canon EOS 60Da features
The Canon EOS 60Da camera packs a 18 Megapixel CMOS sensor (APS-C) that produces sharp and high-contrast images of astronomical objects, a major enhancement over the Canon EOS 20Da model’s 8.2-megapixel sensor. The improved infrared-blocking filter is a modification suited specifically toward astronomy enthusiasts to achieve a hydrogen-alpha light sensitivity that is approximately three times higher than that of a normal Canon DSLR camera. This produces a 20% higher transmittance of Hydrogen Alpha line, or Hα wavelength, allowing astronomers to capture crisp, clear pictures of reddish, diffuse nebulae.

Crisp pictures of the stars and planets can be viewed on the Canon EOS 60Da 3-inch Clear View LCD screen with 1,040,000 dots for detailed focusing. The flip-out Vari-angle display allows photographers to adjust the screen for easy viewing without straining even while the Canon EOS camera is mounted to a telescope via a third-party T-ring adapter. Optimized for stargazing with friends or in an educational setting, astronomy enthusiasts can connect the Canon EOS 60Da camera to a TV with the provided AVC-DC400ST Stereo AV Video Cable and display the night sky on a TV monitor using the camera’s Live View mode. Moreover, the Canon EOS 60Da Live View mode is equipped with a Silent Shooting feature that eliminates shutter-induced vibration for maximum camera stability when the camera is mounted to a telescope or super-telephoto EF lens.

"The Canon EOS 60Da digital SLR camera is a testament to the constant desire to meet the needs of every customer, including those in specialized fields," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A., "This new Canon camera enables an accurate depiction of a part of our solar system which is hard to achieve with conventional cameras but should be enjoyed and celebrated."

The new Canon EOS 60Da camera helps capture the wonders of the night sky with its use of Canon’s award-winning EF and EF-S lenses along with other Canon EOS accessories. Additionally, the Canon EOS 60Da is packaged with Canon’s RA-E3 Remote Controller Adapter, providing the ability to connect a Canon Timer Remote Control such as the TC-80N3 (optional accessory). The Canon TC-80N3 is ideal for controlling time exposures longer than 30 seconds as well as capturing a series of consecutive time exposures that can be composited during post-processing for improved image quality. This is especially useful when the camera body is connected to a telescope1 or an EF super telephoto lens. Canon has also included an AC adapter kit with the Canon EOS 60Da, allowing the camera to be powered through an AC wall outlet or a battery-powered inverter, ideal for long exposure image or video capture at home or in the field.
