Well bobzeq25 the original question had formulated after reading up on Canon's RA camera and I had recieved the 40D in a bulk purchase. That being said try not to judge me to harshly here. I will try not to be to long winded here, so have been interested in Astronomy and really not having time to devote it as needed I had recently decided after having to retire due to back fusions I have jumped in with both feet not checking the depth of the waters and not knowing what EAA was or meant. I have wound up with a little bit of stuff lets say. I could outline all the mistakes I made here 1st of all not joining the St Louis Astronomical Society until after I had purchased a Nextar 6SE and a Neximage Burst C with ideal I would be able to use my laptop to control scope and look at images in realtime! Oh how I have learned a lot in the last month or so and by no means have a full handle on all of it.
Now if I had an unlimited or at least 6-8 thousand $'s I could set myself up really well. As I'm sure the majority of us don't I didn't want to go to crazy right out of the box and so now I find my inventory of cameras to consist of original Olympus E-620, modded Canon 40D, NextImage Burst C, NextImage 5, & a Skyris 236C, so in answer to the question I guess technically I have astro specific cameras already. They are just not what most would choose I'm sure. The price was right to get my feet wet without drowning or so I thought. LOL!
It's when I opened the NextImage Burst C (the only brand new AC) that I started to realize this is not the same as Terestrial Photography although both ideally are deally with capture of light. Astro Photography is avery specialized capture of light traveling an incredible distance through a miriad spacial atmosheric anomilies and conditions that are not experienced in the terestial setting.
So much for not getting long winded, LOL!
