Joe I'd like it if you posted some images soon.

I am tossing up what type of camera to get modified for widefield astro shots. I have a D800E and its fantastic for widefield shots. But Milky Way season is coming up soon here in Australia and I would also like to be able to get a bit more Ha and colour plus some extra sensitivity for shots and time lapses.

I am leaning towards a D600 or a Sony Nex 6. I'd go for a Fuji XE1 but it appears noone has modded one. XE1 has the lowest noise of all these cameras at ISO6400 but Fuji does overstate their ISOs.
