My name is Mitch, and this week I purchased a new Canon 60Da...
I've been a hard core Nikon owner/user for professional use since 1968 however frustrations of attempting to get a Nikon D300s working as an astroimaging camera has caused me to add the 60Da camera to my kit. It was a hard choice for me deciding between the Nikon D7000 however I've owned good Canon's before, and the advantages of the 60Da with modified filter as factory installed plus the 18 Mp imager (4.3 pixel size) plus the astroimaging software choices were the main deciding factors.
The 60Da arrived Thursday, 2 August and I spent afternoons since getting to know it and testing it with various camera control software packages, and it sure is a dream to use when hung on the end of a USB cable... By the end of Friday afyternoon, I knew beyond a doubt I'd made the right choice.
Hi folks! The name is Chuck Walters. The signature says it all.....T3i unmodded, but with an installed Astronomik Clip In CLS filter. CFO (wife) gave the go ahead for a used T2i or T3i body in the Fall to have modded by Brent Oliver from Hyper-Cams.
Hi! my name is Sabin Fota and I am from Romania. For astrophoto I'm gonna have an JTW Ultimate 600D camera and for foto I use an 50D camera.

I have an original 20Da that I purchased just after they came on the market in early 2006. I always felt that the learning curve was too high for me to use this on my 11" NexStar. Late this past summer I finally took he plunge and started to do a small number of APs. Now it's winter and a little too cold, but will still try a few shots for my M30 achievement.
Hi all - my name is Billy. Very new at this. I have a 90LCM Celestron refractor and a Rebel xTi. Not sure how it is all going to work, but I will see if I can manage it. Thanks for the opportunity to be here. I also have a Canon point and shoot I can use.

If you have a good look around the forum I'm sure you will find all the information you need to get you started in astrophography. Don't be afraid to ask questions, there are a lot of people who are willing to help.
Greetings from the South of Ireland
thought I could join here as well since I'll be using my 5D Mk II (unmodded). So far not such a great experience, just trying to find out stuff. Don't own a telescope or an EQ mount (yet), but that might change. Until then I will be using the lenses I have and my tripod(s) to try things out, find the right settings etc and get used to post-production.
This forum is a minefield of information so don't be afraid to ask questions. There is always someone willing to guide you in the right direction. If you have a local Astronomy Society they will also help to get you up and running. Good luck and I'll be looking out for your images.
Cheers Mick, I noticed that already So far only one session done, it's "Outcome" is in the Astrophotography Image Processing forum somewhere.
But once the skies are a tad better I definately I will drag the equipment out again. But in Ireland the weather forecasts are valid for about 5 minutes
