Canon EOS Ra camera review

Astrophotographers and landscape astrophotographers looking to try and emphasize the colors of the nebula (Hydrogen Alpha) in their work now have a serious piece of kit available to help them achieve this in the Canon EOS Ra.

Differentiating from dedicated astrophotography cameras normally used on telescopes, the Canon EOS Ra interlinks the rest of Canon’s RF mirrorless system, resulting in an array of interchangeable lenses. With a familiar feel for existing EOS R users, the camera is essentially a Canon EOS R with some adjustments, meaning the unit doubles up nicely as a second camera for landscape/nightscapers who use two units.
