Just wondering: The new Nikon D810 has no anti-aliasing filter and no optical low-pass filter.

Does this mean that it will not require any further modifications to capture H-Alpha (color) images? (I don't mean to compare this with a Mono CCD but with other DSLRs such as the Canon 20Da and 60Da)

Thanks for your thoughts!

I have been looking but so far have no info on the spectral response of the D810 sensor. I do know the D800 and D800E both have the low pass filter and are not great for red emission nebulae.

 

Hoping the new one is better.

Guys,  the AA Filter/low pass "effect" has nothing to do with the spectrum of light that the filter passes. It is ONLY a blurring filter and as such these cameras will perform identically to every other stock camera.

 

However, modified D800's have been performing brilliantly. I sincerely miss mine very much..

Cheers

I'm interested in getting the D810 for my photography kit. Has anyone used this camera for astrophotography yet?

 

Ciao,

Mel

I've used a 800 and it's great for wide field work. Some one said they have issues with processing due to the RAW format? There is a long thread on it.
