  2. Canon 400D Astro cooling modded.

    I agree Patrick. Read the original post. It has been sold anyway, so what is all the fuss about.

    I would like to as it takes a lovely image. Only reason I went to the 40D was for live view and the fact that you dont need a shutter release cable. I got it at a great price and the deal was I had to sell my 400D or it wasnt going to happen.

    just a small tweak of noise removal. If I kept the 400D I would have my wedding tackle removed by the boss I reckon.

    Not a great deal of difference between what you get with the 40D as compared with the 400D the result is basically the same, but less cabling and live view makes it a lot easier. The 40D is about 250gm heavier than the 400D so there is a little bit of balancing that needs to be attended to. Looks like I will now be putting my 400D up for sale. No sense having two very similar cameras.

    I upgraded my 400D modded to a 40D modded, mainly because of the live view and less hassles with cabling. Decided to have a go at the Trifid tonight under dodgy skies. Humidity 95% and scattered Altostratus cloud. This was just a test really to see if it worked as well as my 400D. I managed 7x 480 plus darks and bias. A bit of PS tweak.

    Nice shot that one. Yeah the hot pixels can be a nuisance, I use the Clone stamp tool to remove them in photoshop.

    Thanks for the positive comments people. This side of photography is a steep learning curve.
