Hello everyone, my name is Roberto, i would like to thank you in advance for your time and support . I come to this forum as a newbie in order to please ask you for some advice.

I really want to introduce myself to astrophotography, I've been playin around with my Nikon P600 but I want to take a step further so I want to purchase new gear !

Firstly I would like to share what my intentions are, I really love specifically "really long" timelapses and thats my main goal, both during day and night, as well as astrophotography with/without star-tracker.

I don't understand why it's necessary to make a gigantic leap from the P600 to these top-line cameras - especially if the cost terrifies you. These cameras may not even be the best ones to choose for time-lapse or astrophotography anyway.

I was thinking something like a new/used Nikon D7XX or D8XX + intervalometer + dummy battery would work very well. Nikon makes the D810A especially for astro, but I see they're very expensive. Other companies sell modified cameras for astro work.
