The Canon EOS 60Da astrophotography DSLR launched

Canon has launched a new variation of the EOS 60D specifically aimed at astonomical photographers, adding an infared filter to enhance sensitivity to that spectrum of light. The Canon EOS 60Da is more of a modification of the previously released model, adding little to the spec list other than the filter. 

This allows long-wavelength light to be picked up far more easily, making it three times more sensitive to infared light than the EOS 60D. This, combined with an 18MP sensor and up to 12,800 ISO rating, makes the Canon EOS 60Da the perfect companion to a telescope for shooting the sky at night.
