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.


Sorry Greg it will take some time, I purchased a Rokinon 14mm but ended up having to return it in as it was the wrong model.  I purchased the 50mm 1.8g in the meantime and think I'm leaning towards the 16-35 instead.
