What Canon for modification?

Postby Trollsvans » Tue Jan 24, 2017 10:34 pm

I'm thinking of getting a modified camera for my astro work.
I do both nightly landscapes and Deep Sky, currently with an un-modified EOS 1100D.

What EOS bodies would be worth getting my hands on without having to sell my kidneys?
Crop sensor preferable I guess, so I don't have to upgrade my current lenses too.
The 1100D seems fairly popular and not too noisy.
How are the other series compared to it? (100D, 500D-760D, 60D-70D)
Any of these stand out in a crowd? The 600D and up do have the fancy screen, seems rather nifty.

Any other recommendations?
Also as to what modification, I was thinking Baader mod, as I still want to be able to use standard lenses.
Or is it all moot point as I live in a rather polluted area and, at least at the moment, have very few occasions for nightly excursions?
