I've seen some deals on the bay for a d7000+18-200mm a bit over 500$


Thanks for that , now i have the choice of Erics canon and your nikon and both leave a little wriggle room for extras .

Here is the main thing you should look at in any case:

Camera has a decent sized CCD sensor (both the cameras I and intergalactic fire suggested do).

It has a "manual" mode that allows you to fully control the camera when it comes to things like exposure time, f-stop and white balance.

You can change the lens (to me this is a must because at some point you may want to hook up your camera to a telescope, and you'll need an adapter for that. It allows you to hook up your camera in place of the telescope's eyepiece holder).

Those will be the main things you'll most likely want to pay attention to.

Canon EOS Rebel series. I personally use a T3 (1100 D), you can get the T5 for under 400 USD now.

One of the best for astro pics is the Canon 6D, but it's got a 1,400 USD price tag, heh.


If you really want to push the boat out this is the dogs you know whats

I settled on a nikon d7000 second hand , it was a money thing more than a brand thing . Now its the lenses , hopefully something might fall through the cracks on Ebay but i doubt that happens very often . Still time is on my side . Next from me is going to be 20,000 questions . Perhaps its own thread so as to not derail .
