It looks like D50 & D70S were much more popular for AP use.
I have a D80 and am very happy with it.
Check the web for AP reviews of this model.
Everyone feels Canon is better suited to AP and is much more supported with software for camera control from PC.
Either way the newer the less noise and amp glow you will experience.

While its true that Canon is more popular for AP and there is more software written for it, Nikon have recently made significant advances with their cameras and there is now software available for camera control for most Nikons. Also, I believe a version of BackyardEOS is being developed for Nikons. So, if you already have Nikon Glass you shouldn't feel you have to move to Canon for AP.

note: KEH has a nikon D100 body for $126. BGN condition, but KEH is quite conservative. and they will give you a warranty.
you can get a Rebel XT from KEH for $126 and a Rebel XTI for $149. And an XSI for $275.
i would go for the XSI... because it has Live View, which is pretty useful when focusing.
