Nikon have announced a new version of their popular D810 DLSR, the Nikon D810A DLSR which is designed to be used for astrophotography.
The Nikon D810A is designed specifically for astrophotographers and it comes with a 36 megapixel sensor.
The Nikon D810A provides hobbyists as well as professional stargazers with a powerful combination of impressive resolution and features specifically created for astrophotography and scientific applications. The infrared (IR) cut filter has been optimized to allow transmission of the hydrogen alpha spectral line, resulting in four times greater sensitivity of the 656nm wavelength. The resulting images capture the brilliant red hues of diffuse nebulae and constellations in striking detail and fidelity. While not recommended for general photography, the D810A is an excellent option for photographing the universe with either NIKKOR lenses or third-party adaptors for telescopes.
The new Nikon D810 will launch in may and as yet there are no details on how much it will retail for.
