I am interested in getting a DSLR for Astrophotography. Can anyone tell me which camera (either the 350D or 20D) would work the best for astrophotography, or would they both work about the same? Thanks

there is a 20Da available in japan that is specifically meant for this task. I would say that both cameras have bulb mode, almost the exact same image quality, and almost exactly the same ISO performance.
I don't assume weight would be an issue since it would live on a tripod. The only difference that I could think about is price then. I can get you the 20D for $1266 shipped if you want it, or you could purchase the 350D for $766 with the same vendor.
PM me if you are interested.
