I have a Canon 500d that was modified by removing ir cut filter and a Canon 6d not modified, cus when someone comes up whit a good project it is still wunderfull to look.
I have the ASI1600MM pro and its a great ccd camera but when you lay an effort work in DSLR it has a macic glove in the image that manny ccd cameras still lacks off.
What I try to tell you is learn your equepment and Grove from there.
Best of Luck to you.

Is it worth trying to build a “cooling box” for my camera (d810) I’m thinking of summer nights around MADRID , Spain .

I’ve heard of a camera modification that doesn’t involve any cooling system,  anyone has it ?  It’s done at Spencer’s camera Here

It canno payoff.
I was thinging the same time a go, the Best way to get the Best Out of a dslr is to imageing when its biting cold to reduse noise.
The Canon 6d has werry little noise but you have to save up to get a mono ccd whit cooling.
Thats the Best advise I can give you.

I had a DSLR for a couple of years but became frustrated with the noise.  Bought a Cool box but found it such a faff to operate with the box around the camera (as then unable to get at on/off switch and Mode switch, plus the camera came out soaking wet afterwards which worried me, so I stopped using it and ended up getting a Cooled dedicated mono camera.

I rarely dabble in DSLR imaging these days but sometimes there is a reason why, and when I do it reminds me why I changed to a CCD camera.

Personally I would not waste time  and money buying a second DSLR.  If you already have one fine, but if you are going to buy again, I would get a dedicated cooled camera.
