In this interview, Alex Williamson, one of the executive producers of the show, says they used a bunch of systems but the workhorse was the Canon ME-20 camera, up-rezed to 4K. They also used adapted astronomy lenses, one being the Astro lens.
another show, Netflix's Night on Earth, used the Sony A7s2.
Both shows only shot at night in full moon (6 days either side of the full moon cycle).
Does anyone know for sure which cameras were used to make the Apple TV+ show "Earth at Nigh in Color"? The images are stunning and I have read that they only shot for about 3 nights per month in order to have the full moon source. Eery article mentions the amazing super low light capable cameras but they never state what kind they are. I've guessed that they use the Canon ML or ME cameras capable of the equivalent of 4 million asa (+75db gain).
I tested that camera when it was first introduced but under different conditions and parameters.
