April 4, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Snapping a picture is a creative endeavor, for which even the sky is not the limit. There are people who always keep their dreams in the outer space to snap the beauties there. For these folks, Canon has rolled out Canon EOS 60Da.

Tailored to meet the needs of astronomical photography, the rig has improved features like the modified infrared filter which makes sure that these invisible extra terrestrial rays will not give issues on your pics.

The improved 18 megapixel APS-C CMOs sensor with high hydrogen-alpha sensitivity on this cam helps the users fetch beautiful photographs of red Hydrogen emission nebulae and similar cosmic events.

This way, it packs three times more hydrogen alpha light sensitivity than a usual DSLR cam from Canon.

The new rig that replaces the old gun EOS 20Da is a real jump from the predecessor who had just 8.2 megapixel resolution sensor.

In addition, it has a 3-inch, 1,040,000 dot LCD display which is on a special mount which helps you twist or rotate the display as per your convenience.

The AVC-DC400ST Stereo AV Video Cable that comes with the device helps users to connect the cam with a TV to have the live view at a bigger screen. To avoid the vibration when you release the shutter, the cam also has a silent mode on it.

For clear pics, it offers ISO speeds up to 6400 which can be expanded to 12800. Other features include 9 point AF, RAW + JPEG support and full manual controls.

Since it is meant for special audience, the rig will not turn up with every retailer, but on select outlets only.

When it hits the shelves this month, it will have a $1499 price tag with it. Feel like shooting the stars
