First post here, so be easy on me.
Like the title implies I'm contemplating moving on from a 6D to a one shot color camera like the 294.
For the last 2 years I've used a Canon 6D (full frame) with a SkyWatcher 100mm APO for DSO. I also have a Celestron 9.25 that I tried to use the 6D on with substandard results. After purchasing hundreds of dollars on adapters, filters, etc, I scrapped using the 6D for planets and purchased a ASI 224 which gives me much more pleasing photos.
Now after 2 years of using the 6D for DSO the learning curve is tapering off and I'm seeing what I perceive to be shortfalls in my setup. For one, nearly all the Messier objects (except M31 of course) requires extensive cropping to get the object large enough to be useful. Second, I'm getting really tired of clip in filters. I live in a red area with substantial light pollution and have experimented with a few different CLS filters which kind of help, but I'm still not getting the results I'm looking for. The camera is unmodified since I also use it for regular photography which means taking the clip in filters in and out and no matter how hard I try to be quick and clean the sensor always seems to get dust on it, which i can usually remove with flats for astrophotos, but is frustrating when I'm taking pictures of birds and wildlife.
I've been looking into the 294 MC pro. I'm wondering if that would fix my problem of having to crop so much of the picture in processing? I'm also like the idea of screw on filters, perhaps experimenting with UV cutoff and a duo band?
I'm sure a lot of you have made the jump from DSLR to a one shot camera. Is it worth it? Is my thought process even on the right track?
Here's some photos I have taken in the past, some of these are mildly usable, some are horrible. I'm looking to get better.
