New and Used Astronomy Modified Canon dSLR Cameras.



>New<>Used<>Used Stock<

Please refresh this page regularly to ensure that prices and information are up to date.

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.

The following links give further details/ reviews of the 2000D.

Contents of the standard body kit:

  • Canon 2000D Body
  • Battery

Brand New Canon EOS 250D Modified for Astronomy.

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.

Used Canon EOS dSLR cameras available to order.

Astronomiser offers modified used cameras from MPB. We can normally supply just about any camera from their used Canon EOS dSLR catalogue in six working days or less. We calculate the cost we charge you by taking the sale price, adding the cost of the mod and the carriage costs both from MPB to us and from us to you. For example, at the time of writing a good condition/ low shutter count 700D from MPB is £234. Add the cost of the rear filter removal with sensor repositioning mod, £95 and carriage, £15 and you get £344 for payment by bank transfer. For payment by card or PayPal there is an additional (approx 3%) payments system fee.

So whether you are considering a first dabble into astrophotography, an upgrade to something more modern or perhaps even a step up to a full format 6D, please email me, Andy Ellis at astronomiser001@gmail.com and I'll be happy to discuss your requirements, recommend particular models and provide a quote for your next camera.

Note: The price is the same whether you would like the camera supplied with either the rear filter removal mod or the full spectrum mod. For details on the filters and mods, please see our page on the standard Canon filter set or contact us for further advice.

Delivery time from payment to supply is within six working days.
