For sale is an astromodified Canon 6D

Camera modified by La Salamandra Camera. During the modification the shutter mechanism was replaced with brand-new factory parts, which means this camera has tons of mileage left in it.

This mod involved removing the middle filter wafer (IR absorbing filter) which blocks most 656nm (H-alpha) light from making it to the sensor. In this camera the "front" filter, aka the IR hot-mirror filter (dichroic mirror), was left in place which retains appropriate IR exclusion properties which saves you from having to purchase an accessory filter. The camera also retains it's piezoelectric sensor-cleaner which shakes dust off the sensor.

You can use this camera for astrophotography on day 1 with no need for extra filters to screen out the infrared.

Camera is in overall good used condition.

Comes with aftermarket battery and charger, body cap.
