The Canon EOS Ra is the first mirrorless camera from Canon dedicated to deep sky and night sky photography. It has an infrared cut off filter which enables it to capture more detail in the deep red spectrum, making it an ideal camera to capture more vivid images of nebulae when combined with a sky tracker. The camera also features an impressive 30x magnification function in the live-view mode for identification of deep space objects.
30.3 Megapixel Full Frame Sensor for Astrophotography
With a 30.3-megapixel full frame sensor, a revolutionary 5655 points of auto focus and 4K30 video recording packed into a compact mirrorless body, the EOS Ra is the new standard for astrophotography. The sensor has an improved sensitivity for H-alpha rays and can absorb around 4x the amount of deep red infrared rays compared to a regular EOS R.
DiG!C8 Image Processor

Dual Pixel RAW File Support
Canon’s Dual Pixel RAW file support, further improves image detail and sharpness. The EOS Ra utilises its Dual Pixel sensor configuration to generate a single RAW file that contains both image data and parallax information. Combined with the Dual Pixel RAW Optimizer software, professionals can really explore the limits of what is possible during post-production by making micro adjustments using the depth information contained within the file to deliver maximum sharpness.
