How so? The 1000D is an entry level camera, the 60D is mid. Canon EOS's are No.1 when it comes to software and astrophotography. The 1000D is a bit on the noisy side without being cooled but i would still go one over a nikon 3100 for ap work for the software support alone.

Heres something real fun just select raws and see how things turn out lol, you can even scroll down to raw section and play.
