    Nikon D810A (Astrophotography Body)

    According to Nikon, they make a D810A which is dedicated to astrophotography. Curious to hear if anyone has one and whether or not it takes star images better than a D810.

    Other that weight and ISO range they look the same.

    This says the sensor is special on the 810A:

    The D810 is Nikon's highest-resolution DSLR, and the D810A is a specialized version specifically designed for astrophotography. As well as a higher base ISO sensitivity, the D810A's sensor is modified to capture the specific wavelengths of the light transmitted by distant nebulae. Watch our video to see how Josť - and the D810A - performed.

    It helps pick up the reds from some of the nebulas out there. H-Alpha like the Horsehead.
