Canon announces EOS 60Da digital SLR for astrophotography  
Tuesday, April 3, 2012 | by Rob Galbraith
Canon has unveiled the EOS 60Da, a variant of the company's upper entry level EOS 60D that's designed specifically for astrophotography. The 60Da is built around the same image sensor as the 60D, but it has been reworked for enhanced transmission of a specific wavelength of red light - 656 nanometers - within the visible spectrum. Like 2005's EOS 20Da, this will make the new model well-suited to capturing photos of hydrogen-rich reddish diffuse nebulae.
