Hello experts 

 

i have a Svbony 8M camera and was wondering if a Canon EOS camera would capture better images. What are your opinions?

 

 Thanks

You need a cooled camera if you plan on getting into serious astrophotography. Neither the Canon EOS nor the Svbony are cooled cameras. I would save my money and get a used cooled astro camera, plenty are sold in the classified forum.

I would echo Dwight's statement. If you are looking for a camera upgrade for astrophotography, you want one with cooling. I don't know your budget, but my top choice would be a camera based on the IMX571 sensor (ZWO ASI2600, QHY 268, etc). If that's not in the cards, my next choice would be a camera based on the IMX533 sensor.

Svbony 8M is a planetary camera so DSLR can be a 'better' camera if you want to do DS imaging.

What do you want to shoot better ? The Svbony is a small pixel planetary cam. Do you want to get into deep space ?
