Hello All,

 

I haven't been able to find a vendor in Germany so far that gave me confidence to go through with the process, be that being unresponsive to emails, web sites looking fishy etc.

 

I would like to have my Nikon D5600 modded for full-spectrum (which is why I bought it in the first place) therefore, any recommendations for a good vendor in Germany would be greatly appreciated.

 

Many thanks.

Many thanks cybermayberry. Will do. I have indeed seen some of his responses/posts and he seems quite knowledgeable just like you said.

 

Wanted to start a topic nevertheless to see if anyone in the forum hailing from Germany could recommend a decent vendor.

 

Much appreciated.

Many thanks. I actually did check with Astroshop (I usually shop there) as they also sell astro modded cameras, but they responded they do not offer the service. Will definitely check with TS as well. Good tip.

Sadly, they seem to only be selling modded Canons and offering astro modification service only for Canons. frown.gif

Hello! You found the Elf.

 

https://www.gerdneum...os-cameras.html

 

Zusätzlich zu den fertigen, umgebauten Kameras biete ich auch einen Umbauservice Ihrer (ggf. älteren) Kamera an: Jedes Canon DSLR Kamera kann für die Astrofotografie umgebaut werden. Wenn Sie eventuell für den Alltagsgebrauch eine neue Kamera erworben haben, ist es ein guter Zeitpunkt die ältere Kamera für die Astrofotografie umbauen zu lassen! Für Fragen zum reinen Umbauservice senden Sie bitte eine eMail an info@gerdneumann.net, Sie erhalten umgehend eine PDF Datei, die alle gängigen Fragen rund um den Ablauf des Umbaus erläutert.

 

https://www.baader-p...lr-kameras.html

Also looks like they do Canon only.

 

TS also offers a mod service but again only for Canon

https://www.teleskop...nalfilters.html

 

If I was in your shoes I'd e-mail all three and ask if they do a Nikon as well.

 

Here a Nikon service is available:

Hello. I would argue it's the other way around and the Elf in fact has found me lol.gif  but I am very glad that it happened. 

 

Many thanks for all the information. I will certainly send an email to each and every one of them and ask as recommended.

 

In fact, I have indeed emailed Astrotec.de before however, unfortunately they haven't gotten back to me. Maybe I also can ping them again to see if I can get a hold of them this time. Maybe my mail was fallen into the cracks for some reason.

 

As a follow up question, have you used the services of any of those yourself? 

 

Again many thanks to all that responded. Much appreciate all your help.

 

Cheers.
