Had a great time with this camera, but I upgraded and no longer need it.

What's included:
  • Nikon D5100 Body & Body cap
  • USB Cable
  • 2x Aftermarket EN-EL14a batteries
  • Aftermarket DC battery adapter (power brick not included)
  • DSUSB adapter (needed for PC shutter control)
What's not included:
  • Battery charger
  • DC adapter power brick
  • camera strap and other misc. accessories
As for the camera, it has been carefully modded to remove the IR cut filter allowing for better sensitivity to Hydrogen Alpha. Additionally, it has been flashed with a custom firmware that allows for better dark noise. You can undo that part if you want, just flash the stock firmware.
The viewfinder is broken. You don't need a viewfinder for astrophotography, but I thought I'd mention it. You can still see through it, but the focusing plane is off-center somewhere and it causes it to appear far away and out of focus. Doesn't effect the functionality of the camera for AP at all unless you use the viewfinder for some reason. Additionally, there is some dust on the mirror. If you're taking flats this won't matter anyway, and you can clean it off if you wish. I never bothered because it made no difference.

With this kit, you can run and control this really awesome camera using backyardnikon or other AP software thanks to the DSUSB cable ($75 if you buy it separately).

Shipping is extra, and will depend on where you're located. I'll only ship to the U.S and maybe Canada. Shouldn't cost too much though.
