Canon launches EOS 60Da for astrophotographers
The formula is tried and tested, take a good mid-range camera and optimise it’s low pass filter to make the camera more sensitive to hydrogen-alpha (Hα) wavelengths of light. First done with the EOS 20D to make the EOS 20Da which also had the first implementation of Live View mode in a Canon DSLR, now taking the EOS 60D as the base camera to make the EOS 60Da. Astrophotographers will be pleased.
To make it straightforward to use the camera for long exposures or timelapse photography the EOS 60Da includes the ACK-E6 AC Adapter and also a new Remote Controller Adapter RA-E3. The RA-E3 simplifies connecting the TC-80N3 Timer Controller to the EOS 60Da’s 3.5mm socket since the RA-E3 acts as a converter from the N3 connector on the TC-80N3 to the cameras E3 connector.
