Shoot The Stars

Nikon’s brand new D810A is designed especially from astrophotography.

Everyone has looked up to the stars on a beautiful night and wished they could photograph the stars as clearly as we perceive them. At long last, stargazers have got their wish. Nikon’s brand new D810A is designed especially from astrophotography.

A variant of the well known D810, the latest DSLR camera comes with a new and improved infrared cut filter, which can now better capture the hydrogen alpha spectral wavelength, which will give nebulas and constellations, a sharp, clear photograph in red. These brighter, more focused reds however, will also appear in regular photos, so those not interested in shooting the stars would do better to invest in the regular D810.

The newest Nikon is boasting a serious 36.3 megapixel full-frame image sensor.

This camera is already making waves in the astrophotography fields, because rivals DSLR’s that also shoot the stars, like Canon’s 60Da have a much smaller resolution. The newest Nikon is boasting a serious 36.3 megapixel full-frame image sensor, which is the same as the D810, whereas the 60Da uses only 18 megapixels with a APS-C image sensor, that has remarkably less pixels.

Although the price has not yet be released, it’s likely it will be upwards of $3,000, which is the price range of the D810. The camera will hit shelves this May.
