Hi everybody
« on: 07:22:28, 04 March, 2018 »
Hi all, help and expertise needed. I’ve been interested in astrophotography for just over a year now. I have saved up £ 1000 in that time for my first camera and lens. I have opted for the Nikon D7200 crop sensor as full frame seems out of my price bracket. However I see the older canon 6d is a similar price on amazon I think the D7200 beats it in most comparison sites, however the 6d has the larger sensor which is obviously important in gathering light. My first aims are wide field galaxy shots until I can save and mount the camera to an imaging scope. Would anyone pick the D7200 over the full frame option, I’ve got a couple of weeks until I take the plunge and want to make the right choice first time. Thanks

Welcome to UKAI.

I cant answer your question regarding the nikon, but when i imaged with a nikon i found that most of the software out there at the time were for canons.    But that was quite a few years ago.

Im sure someone will be able to input a bit more than what i have lol

These days the consensus seems to be that Nikon has gone past Canon and this also applies astro imaging.
Regarding full frame vs crop sensor - I personally would choose crop sensor.
With full sensor you have to buy also better optics to fully utilize the sensor - and those optics are expensive.
Now there's astro software for Nikon too, so that's not a problem.
Just my 2 cents.
And welcome to forum.
