Hello! I'm new to this forum, but I'm confident from what I've read that you folks can help answer my questions.
I'm looking at buying a camcorder to record the night sky. I'm hoping to record shooting stars and lights in the sky or long periods of time but I'm having difficulty figuring out which camera to purchase. I'm really a novice in regards to camcorders, but I was thinking the Canon HF20 looked like a good choice, since it has 32GB of built in memory, shoots in full 1080 HD, and it felt nice when I used it at Best Buy. If you think this is not the right camera, please suggest a better one for this specific purpose of shooing the sky at night for long durations.
I was hoping to stay in the $500-$700 range if at all possible. However, if I'll need a more expensive camera to shoot the night sky, I'd be willing to spend more.
Thank you all for your help! I really appreciate it!
