DSLR modding service in Oz?

Anyone know of an astro-conversion service in Australia? I'm thinking of getting my Nikon d5600 modded to H-Aplha or full spectrum.

I'm also considering other options like buying an already modded used camera or saving the cash towards a full frame camera with a low noise chip.

Not only are they in Australia, they're in Melbourne.

Camera Clinic

Hi there

I had a 6D modded by them I supplied a Baader filter as I did not want a full spectrum mod that they had chips for I just wanted increased HA sensitivity. The Baader filer was purchased from Astro Anarchy in Qld.
Hope that helps Trevor

Tony, if you have access to small tools and a pair of steady hands, you can do it yourself quite easily

I have done a number of Canon's (and killed one) but they are very straight forward.

Bo, the Canon looks a bit easier than the Nikon. The last part dealing with the chip looks a bit dicey in the Nikon procedure.
