I believe i saw it on canon usa also. It does make quite a bit of sense though; with the low noise of their latest crop of cameras. I suspect that you can get great shots if you have a low level of light pollution.

:-)I foundthe astrophoto pagelinked from the 20D page on the Canon Canada site here:

I agree though, I can't wait for my EF mount/T-Thread adapter to arrive and the sky's to clear so I can give it a try. This November has been on the mostly cloudy side.

I've got an old203mm F5(1000mm) SkyWatcher telescope on a CG5mount, both axis driven.

:blah:Although to get dark sky's around here, I'll just have to run around the neighborhood and knock out all the light. :blah:with my little adjustment hammer. :blah:

There is an announcement for a special Canon 20D made for Astronomy. 20DA is its name. It is the same as 20D without IR filter on the Cmos ! Announced in Japan. Could be a limited version as Canon uses to sometimes.
