Meanwhile I will start testing the modified Fuji, I still confident CANON and SONY should be major cameras for astro photography for a while. I still like optical view finder, which makes the composing quite comfortable. so as camera handling, I prefer to DSLR like 6D. Image result?, probably too early to call. But I feel like SONY sensor has a bit more QE at Ha wavelength. Our community should clarify soon.


*SONY : Canon flange back version w/camera rotator and filter box

BTW, now SONY astronomical UV/IR blocking version is available too. So you can select either no filter or UV/IR blocking. One suggestion to choose is that, if you wish to use LPS or HEUIBII filters, I recommend no filter version. Those filters work as UV/IR blocking. Less number of filter is always less possibility for internal reflection. So Ideal option is no filter.

  1. Will you publish some tests on noise levels of the 6D vs the a7s at various speeds in similar long exposures? That would be very interesting! Thanks, Ted.
