Mad keen photographer and astronomer. Use mostly Nikon gear, some Canon.
marike6: Just saw a nice D600 video demo, and it really is impressive. It's all nature so no opportunity to check for moire, but if the D600 lacks the moire that exists in the D800, I may have to bag my plans to get a Fuji X-E1 to go with my D800, and get this camera. Thanks for the samples DPR, they look terrific.

Thanks for posting. Why didn't Nikon give ME a D600 to go and do this :-(
mickeyfoto: Which is best for Astro photography - D600 or D800 and why?
I'm just starting out in astro but want to be sure that the kit I get will last. Are there any specific considerations which would make me chose either the D600 or the D800? I'm currently experimenting with a D200.
Any advice very gratefully received, thanks
I recently bought a well used D90 specifically to have the IR filter removed. This will need to be done professionally, but it will be much more sensitive to red.I would not, however, buy a D600 and do the same thing. I do want one, but I would use it as is.I am aware that Canon market two models specially for astrophotography, the older 20Da and the more recent 60Da. I must say I'm not sure why Nikon don't do an astro model given their long links with NASA & space imaging.
