It doesn't seem like a good camera for astro. It would be great instead for sports, journalism and weddings.
I think this is true for the cheaper EOS xxx series. But the 5 is a professional camera so I don't know why not optimized for RAWs.

I think only a very few cameras have less noise at high ISO than the 5Mk3, but I doubt whether the 5Mk3 is much better than the 5Mk2, but I think as an SLR the 5Mk2 or 5Mk3 are one of the best astro SLRs due to the full frame and low light performance.
