EOS 5D - to mod or not to mod??

Hi All

Was thinking about modding my EOS 5D (which is full-frame) to use for astrophotography as I am about to purchase the latest 7D model - what's the pros & cons of doing this for the 5D?

I also noticed that this camera has a very high amount of "ämp glow" when doing subs of 5mins or more - I know that one could rid of this problem with flats using a lightbox or just doing some darks to use during post-processing the iamges but would like to know from other experienced IISers who are using the 5D to see if it's all worth doing the mod or not

Thanks in advance for any inputs or feedback

Cheers
Bill
