New and Used Astronomy Modified Canon dSLR Cameras.


Fitted with low noise, broad spectrum sensors and using a true 'RAW' format as well as having the ability to simply couple the camera to a telescope and run exposure times limited only by your set-up's ability to track, Canon cameras are now well supported with accessories and software making them the ideal choice for astrophotographers with a wide range of interests in photographing the night sky. From stunning moonscapes to deeply detailed wide fields, Canon cameras have become the leading name in astroimaging using dSLRs.

Out of the box, a Canon EOS dSLR has two filters in front of the sensor, the front of which is, in most models, coupled to a piezo vibrator for shaking fine dust particles off of the filter surface. This filter effectively blocks UV and IR. The rear filter corrects the white balance for daytime photography cutting the camera's red response in the all-important hydrogen alpha by around 75%. When the camera is modified for astronomy, this second filter is removed. With the filter is removed, the autofocus no longer remains accurate, so we correct this by adjusting the position of the sensor by the use of smaller shims in fixed sensor cameras and by fine adjustment of the sensor's position in floating sensor cameras.

If you also want to use your camera for IR photography, both filters can be removed (a 'full spectrum' mod) at the same cost as having the rear filter removed only. If you would like us to do this, please contact us at the time of order. NOTE: It is not always possible to achieve an accurate autofocus with a full spectrum modified camera.

For more details on the filters and the different mods, see our Filters page.

Brand New Canon EOS 2000D Modified for Astronomy.

Following on from the Canon 1300D, the 2000D sports a new 24Mp sensor. Although the pixel size of the 2000D is subsequently smaller (4.31 micron in the 1300D vs 3.72 micron in the 2000D) the 2000D's sensor is twenty-three months further along in development and scores and impressive DXO Mark of 71 which brings it out fractionally ahead of the 760D. Importantly, it's low-light performance (Sports [Low Light ISO]) places it ahead of its predecessor and other cameras including the 750D and 7DMkII.

...And all of this for a remarkably low price!

Brand New Canon EOS 250D Modified for Astronomy. Currently unavailable.

The latest offering in Canon's benchmark low-weight small-footprint fully-featured dSLR - the smallest dSLR to sport an articulated touchscreen. This small lighweight camera is packed with features including a 24Mp sensor, fully articulated touchscreen, 4K video, and built in intervalometer offering the ability to programme in a sequence of exposures - a very useful feature for the ammateur astronomer, particularly in building a small lightweight 'grab and go' setup. The 250D has not yet had a DXO Mark set, though it has the same size sensor (24Mp) as its predecessor the 200D and the more recent 2000D, which achieve good scores of 79 and 71 respectively.

Brand New Canon EOS 850D Modified for Astronomy.

The latest model in Canon's high-end entry-level range, released in February 2020, the EOS 850D sports a refreshed and updated 24Mp sensor capable of 4K video and 7.5 shutter releases a second. Built for sturdiness using high quality components, Canon's high-end entry-level cameras have been the choice of ammateur photographers since the early days of digital SLRs. Features include a 24Mp sensor, fully articulated touchscreen, 4K video at 24fps and full HD at 60fps, and a built in intervalometer offers the ability to programme in a sequence of exposures - a very useful feature for the ammateur astronomer. The 850D has not yet had a DXO Mark set, though it has the same size sensor (24Mp) as its predecessor the 800D as well as the 200D and the more recent 2000D, both of which achieve good scores of 79 and 71 respectively.

Excellent condition Canon Rebel XS (EOS 1000D) Modified for Astronomy

The Rebel XS, the United States version of the Canon EOS 1000D, features a 10MP sensor, 2.5 in LCD monitor, 7-point AF system and Live View with both phase- and contrast-detect AF, SD/SDHC for storage and a control and menu layout that is pretty much identical to the EOS 450D's. Internally, the camera is controlled by the same processor, the Digic III, as is fitted to the more expensive benchmark in the Canon range, the 450D.

Canon's introductory level cameras have performed well in astrophotography since the introduction of the 1000D at a marked saving when compared to the intermediate range. This camera is a light weight, easy to use and affordable introduction to dSLR astrophotography.

This particular camera is in excellent to 'like-new' condition and shows very few minor marks and scuffs. The only notable scuff is to the body of the flash (see pictures). All rubbers are in excellent condition, there is no paint loss, little to no shining and all rubbers are firmly attached and in excellent condition. The shutter count is very low at approximately nine thousand releases. The sensor is spotless and in excellent condition.

Good condition Canon EOS 1100D Modified for Astronomy

The large pixel size of the 12Mp sensor fitted to the 1100D in combination with all of the sensor technology upgrades of the 550D, e.g., microlensing, improved pixel fill etc., produced a low noise high sensitivity camera which despite it's lowly position in canon's 'introductoy'/ 'beginners' range is capable of stunning astrophotography. The 1100D very rapidly set itself as a benchmark in the Canon range and astrophotoraphy generally, cementing the dSLR's place as a price conscious introduction to high-end astroimaging. The 1100D is also capable of shooting 720p 30fps video and is fitted with a Digic 4 Processor.

Canon's introductory level cameras have performed well in astrophotography since the introduction of the 1000D at a marked saving when compared to the intermediate range. The 1100D is a light weight easy to use and affordable introduction to dSLR astrophotography.

This particular camera shows some marks and scuffs to the rear screen and body, the worst of which is to the corner of the rear screen - see images. There is general wear to paint and coatings with some shining to the corners. The shutter count is low at approximately twenty-three thousand releases. This camera is in generally good condition. The sensor is spotless and in excellent condition.

Excellent condition Canon EOS 650D Modified for Astronomy.

The Canon EOS 650D included all of the sensor advances associated with the 550D and built on them. Released only nine months prior to the release of the Canon 700D, the 650D is virtually identical in every way. With the addition of a fully articulated touchscreen - very handy when reviewing images whilst the camera is still attached to the scope - the 650D has become one of the go-to dSLR camera for astronomers. It's an impressive performer capable of producing stunning results.

This camera is in excellent condition with an shutter count of approximately 17,000. This camera shows a few scuffs and scratches to the body with some minor polishing to corners. The flip screen is in excellent condition with no marks or scratches. The stick on rubbers are all in place and in good condition, though a little discoloured. The sensor is spotless and in excellent condition.
