    Read a little on these mods, but not much. Plan to buy a new scope and camera in the spring. Question I have is how is their "normal" performance impacted by these mods? I'll be using it about half for AP and half for shooting the kids, etc.

    I don't own a modded DSLR, but from what I've read, once you've modded the camera, it's generally considered it an astro-cam.

    You can do a couple of things to improve your regular pics like putting a screw-on IR filter on the lens, or creating a custom white balance.

    There will be some pictures uploaded to the site today to demonstrate before and after.

    It is possible to use the modded camera as a normal camera. You can create a custom profile as mentioned above, or tweak the levels in photoshop.
