I just spoke to Canon and they surmise that it is because of the release of the 20a. Weird how they just deleted all references to the 20D just because of that. It should be back up in 24 hours though according to the rep I spoke to...

I still see the 20D, but they've added a link to the 20Da (for astronomical photography? pretty specialized!), but I don't see a reference to a 20A

Hi tkrotchko,
I think the refrence to the 20a was a typo.
There are so far only the 20D and the 20Da.

20Da gets you the larger bandpass IR filter, and a modified firmware that allows the use of the LCD for monochorme magnified focusing. All for just about double the price :-).

Most people into astrophotography seem to think the Hutech http://www.sciencecenter.net/hutech/newprod.htm
sensor mod is preferable. Though just as expensive.
And the 20Da's firmware may or may not be hackable into the existing 20D. :-) I have not heard of anyone trying to experiment with it yet :blah:

Peter.
