revised Is there any filter opposite to Polarizing filter, to emphasize reflections?
Some spelling and grammar, but most importantly: glass -> glare (which gives the question a whole new meaning ;-))

comment What kind of camera do I need to capture deep space images?
Today, on universetoday.com, there was a link to an image that is probably among the very best possible without digital alterations: flickr.com/photos/67234957@N06/6308631822/in/… clearly shows the milky way's central structures and was taken with a Canon 550d at 25 second exposure at 17mm, f3.5, ISO 3200. The electricity pole (lower right in the image) hints that the photographer was not too far in the wilderness. Note the "trick" with the hilly horizon: This removes a lot of possible light pollution from your immediate zenith view.

While I was hoping to get away with something smaller, it seems the 60D is indeed a good overall match to my requirements. Since there were no further answers and my own research has not yielded anything, I'll assume that the Micro Four Thirds system has no tetherable cameras yet.

I've just clarified the question a bit and started a bounty. If anyone feels the question is too complex, feel free to only address the parts that you can answer.

added "tethering" tag after learning that that's the English term :-)
