Just got a mail from the camera supplier, seems the 1000d is no longer available so he is supplying a modded 450d instead.

Cheers guys, yes Neil for Cheap Astrophotography. I ordered the 1000d as it is still listed on the site but it is no longer available so Juan offered me the 450d at the same price as the 1000d, which is 50 off.... woohoo, bargains don't normally come my way.
Sorry again for the clouds.

nice one..there is a bloke on gumtree selling a canon 1000d with a sigma DL 35-80mm lens plus an aspherical 20-200mm zoom lens all for the pretty price of 70!!! he is in Kirkmuirhill, if I didn't have my 450 or fancied trying to mod a dslr myself I might be tempted
