Canon reaches for stars with DSLR refresh

Aimed at astrosnappers

Reducing security risks from open source software

Canon sent its latest DSLR into orbit today with the launch of the EOS 60Da, a high-res snapper designed for astrophotography.

The Canon EOS 60Da - essentially a refresh of the 20Da - packs a modified infrared filter and low-noise sensor, which along with a "heightened hydrogen-alpha sensitivity", makes it an ideal candidate for shooting the night skies, apparently.

The DSLR features an 18Mp APS-C CMOS sensor with a Digic 4 processor and an ISO range of 100-6400, expandable to 12800. Meanwhile, on the rear you'll find a 3in LCD with a million-dot resolution.

The system is compatible with the EOS range of interchangeable lenses ranging from 8mm to 800mm.

You can get a full read-out of the EOS 60Da's specs at Canon's website.

The Canon EOS 60Da hits shelves in June, with a price tag of 9823 Galactic Groats (£1174 Earth money). ®
