The Canon EOS 60Da DSLR is specifically designed for astrophotography and is based on the highly specified Canon 60D and 20Da cameras. The Canon 60Da features a modified low-pass filter with increased hydrogen-alpha sensitivity that is approximately three times higher than that of a normal DSLR camera. The IR filter sits in front of the 18 megapixel CMOS sensor and makes it possible for astronomers and hobbyists to capture light wavelengths emitted by deep space gasses that are normally blocked by the filters in standard DSLRs, an essential modification to allow users to capture images of nebulae (gas clouds) in space.
