Canon EOS 20Da… For Sale! — [Updated] —

*********************************
**** This Camera Has Been  SOLD  ****

( 17Sep08 )

Are You into Astrophotography?

I have a DSLR camera which I was never able to get to a point of totally utilizing it’s intended use(s). That’s not to say I didn’t use this camera, as I did!  While I’ve used this to shoot some really cool moon shots, a few star trails, etc.  I never did get the rest of the gear I wanted to make this work (tracking head, etc.).  This camera still takes very good photographs and is in really good condition.  I’ll even be taking it by Calumet Photo to have them clean it before I let this baby go.

This Camera Does Love my 500mm f/4.0 lens though!  (You are NOT getting this Lens!)

Serious inquires only please contact me via E-mail  if interested. 
Those that know this camera’s capabilities, you’ll know this is not an ordinary DSLR.
New, this camera sold for $2,200.00.  I am willing to consider offers for about half that.
For those that are not sure, here’s a few informative links about the camera:

Catching The Light 
dpreview.com: Canon EOS 20Da digital camera specifications 

It looks as if Canon’s taken down their pages for this camera, including their own site on Astrophotography.  This is a shame as there was some good and interesting information there.
 

So here’s the deal:   I am considering selling this As-Is, Body Only, No Lens.
Included is: 

  • Canon EOS 20Da Body with Original Box “AS-IS”;
  • BG-E2 Battery Grip;
  • 2-batteries;
  • Original associated cables;
  • Original Printed Manuals
  • At least One 2GB CF card. (SanDisk Extreme III);

 

I am asking:  $1,100.00.  I will entertain other serious offers.
