Just a thought. I have a 60D, but haven't used it for astrophotography yet.

like motherboards in a regular computer, there is a lot that can go wrong and does. Canon, Nikkon, SBIG, QHY, Atik, Finger Lakes what ever the brand or model, they all break.

I think the press-release is a great thing, Guylain/Ivo, and I think it was done very well..
Hopefully the root cause is found..but even then, try getting Canon to admit there is an issue and to do a 'recall', or offer free repairs, is a whole different ball game.. :bangbangbang:

I do not want to put blame on anyone, including Canon. The announcement was published with the intent to create an awareness regarding the issue encountered over the years by real users and in different use scenarios. The hope is that someone figures out the real cause and most importantly perhaps come out with a set of steps to bypass such frustrating power failure in the future.
