There have been some lovely images from a Nikon D5300 modded on this site. That would be worth a look.

I am with Roger on this. Camera is of less importance these days as most modern cameras would be able to do the job. Lens would be more important and most important of all is access to a dark site

In fact I have changed my plans from a Nikon D7500 to a modded Nikon D5300, and I have increased my optical budget by the difference. I believe this will be a wiser allocation of funds for AP. Of course I will have to wait longer to acquire my daytime/everything else camera, because I still need (want?) that, but I will focus on this for now.

In Nebraska, I do have access to dark blue sites within a 1-hour drive. If I want truly black skies, I could head out to the Sandhills region, though it is quite a drive from the capitol.
