Not a professional photographer but, wow!
“The camera does amazing work at night. I have no idea how it compares to the canon 60D but it’s pitch black outside and we’re getting colours from our roses that make it look like daytime. It’s crisp and with the 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, I can get a picture of the moon with craters. I also got the canon shutter button thing for bulb mode and that’s loads of fun.” – By Donald Mackenzie

    Nice option for those who don’t want to modify their camera via a third party. This way you keep the full Canon warranty. There’s a good guide to using a camera like this here: How to Guide: Astrophotography with a DSLR
