Astronomy tests the Canon 60Da

Higher resolution, heightened red sensitivity, and other features make this DSLR the new standard for astroimaging.
Canon 60Da
When I heard that Canon had released the EOS 60Da, a digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera especially designed for astroimaging, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Because I had reviewed the Canon 20Da (in the July 2006 issue of Astronomy) when the company introduced it, I was able to compare the performance of both versions for this story.

Canon offers the 60Da as a camera body only (no lens), although it is compatible with the company’s family of EF and EF-S lenses. The camera package includes a rechargeable battery, a plug-in power supply, the Remote Controller Adapter RA-E3, an AVC-D400ST stereo audio-visual cable, software disks, and an operating manual.
