CentralDS Canon Astro6D

Canon CentralDS Cooled Astro6D. This is a high end full frame colour DSLR that is specifically for astrophotography. The cooler will keep the sensor up to 18c below ambient temperature. Only selling due to downsizing. Camera has only been used for a few months of the year and then was in storage for 18 months until recently. No mechanical shutter to wear out on the CentralDS Astro6D as well which is a bonus.
