The Canon EOS Ra Digital Camera has been developed specifically for astrophotography. The EOS Ra is a modified version of the EOS R, incorporating an Infrared Filter in the front of the image sensor which will help you produce image of the night sky with unbelievable detail and clarity. Canon have taken the IR filter and improved the transmission and sensitivity to H-alpha wavelengths which will in turn help provide greater colour neutrality and depict objects and formations in the sky without contamination from unwanted infrared. Furthermore, the camera has been equipped with a 30x live view magnification that will help with focussing on distant subjects when viewing through the EVF or LCD screen.
Canon has resigned the Infrared Filter so that even higher hydrogen alpha light can reach the sensor. They say that approximately four times more of the hydrogen alpha light can now be transmitter and interpreted by the sensor. It is this increased figure that allows the for greater colour neutrality without contamination from unwanted and distracting infrared. All of this means that you’ll be able to capture even higher quality images of the night sky than before. You’ll be able to make out distant objects and the bright colours of nebulas. Of course, you’ll need to right lens or scope!
Canon know that with an improved filter and you need to know that what you’re photographing is actually in focus. Because of this, they have included a 30x live view magnification that will help with focussing on distant subjects when viewing through the EVF or LCD screen. You’ll be able to make sure that the moon or the stars you are viewing are in focus to make for the perfect photograph.
