Walking on the Moon

Interesting link to DSLR's suitable for Astro conversion


Recommended Posts

I was googling for someone to do an astro conversion on a Nikon D5300 camera. I was looking at the D5300 because I believe it has a Sony sensor as opposed to the Toshiba variant used in a lot of it's siblings. From my ramblings it seems that the Sony produces less noise than the Toshiba.

Anyway I came across this mob in the USA and was interested to read their list of recommended DSLR's for astro conversion.


It seems that they have done some work for NASA so one could assume that they know their stuff.

As a result of their recommendations I'm now looking for a D600/D610, a camera that I've owned but moved on to make funds available for a D800, not one of my better decisions.
