Nikon's new D810A DSLR will help you capture your favorite stars

Nikon has launched a upgraded version of their D810 DSLR with the aim of excelling in the field of Astrography . The new D810A features a IR cut-filter that can capture hydrogen alpha wavelengths of 656nm and therefore it can capture red hues of diffuse nebulae and other planets, moons and other celestial objects(with the help of telescopic Nikkor lenses -sold separately) . The camera , which has a ISO range from 200 - 12800 (upto 58,000) is also backed up by Nikon's NX-D astro noise reduction software , and if you are into long exposure photography , the 810A features a shutter speed which can be set from 4 seconds to 900 seconds .The camera also bags a high megapixel count of 36.3mp ,but the camera's special night sky arrangement  makes it a bad choice for standard  photography as photos will definitely contain a reddish hue .Pricing on this camera is not known , but the standard D810 costs well over $3300 and therefore this single purpose (astrography) camera will surely feature a astronomical  price which will only appeal only to well heeled sky photographers .
