ATIK 414EX Monochrome or Colour CCD Camera

The ATIK 414EX builds on the success of the ATIK 314L and ATIK 460 and 490 camera's by using a highly sensitive Sony Exview sensor.

A combination of very high QE and 6.45 micron pixels gives great sensitivity and excellent Ha response.

In many ways this is the ideal entry level camera.

With a 9mm sensor most scopes will not require a field flattener. Combined with superb sensitivity and very low noise imagers will be able to take very high quality data faster than before with no need for dark frames.

The Atik 414EX narrow footprint means that is can be used on Fastar/Hyperstar configurations, with zero obstruction even on the 6" version. Low weight also keeps the stress on the corrector plate to a bare minimum

ATIK 4120 12MP Colour CCD Camera

The Atik 4120EX is the highest resolution camera from the four series, and the highest resolution Atik Camera to date. Featuring the latest generation Sony EXview HAD CCD II technology, this camera has an outstanding Quantum Efficiency, very low noise and excellent thermal management. This model is an ideal match for Hyperstar systems, where fast f/2 imaging makes it easier than never to get good results, but can also be used with short focal length refractors and astrographs, for beautiful, wide field views of the night sky.
The high resolution is very apparent when printing images out to A3 poster size and beyond and really makes a striking visual impact. This also provides the option of zooming into different parts of an image on a computer screen to see the extra detail pop out. The Atik 4120EX is only available as a one shot color camera (OSC) as this is the format in which the small pixel size really has an advantage in faithfully recording the color of the stars and nebulae in the image.
OSC cameras allow taking a single image and seeing the color, something that would require filters and a filter wheel to accomplish with a monochrome camera. Adding a simple Infrared block filter or a light pollution filter is all you need to explore the wonders of the universe with the Atik 4120EX. The Atik 4120EX fully supports 1.25" filters down to f/2, so helping to keep costs down compared to the larger filter types. The other advantage of a OSC camera is the simplicity of processing its images. By recording color in one image you do not need to align the 3 or 4 separate images types required for LRGB or RGB imaging.

The Perfect Outreach Tool

Video astronomy is ideally suited for use in public outreach programs and educational settings. It allows faint objects to be seen in incredible detail by all involved, and maintains that at the telescope feeling without the need to queue up and crowd round an eyepiece.
With a choice of either a mono or a colour sensor, the Infinity caters for those who prioritise absolute detail, as well as those who want to explore the universe in colour beyond the sensitivity of the unaided human eye.

Multi-purpose
While other video astronomy cameras are often scaled up versions of guide cameras or cameras used in security applications, the Infinity is based on a high-end, fully-fledged 16bit camera originally developed for OEM use in microscopy and inspection applications. This makes it a no compromise solution for capturing high quality images at live view frame rates, designed with even the most demanding user in mind.
This said, the Infinity can still then be used as an exceptional guide camera, featuring a standard ST4 guide port for direct connection to your mount. And if video astronomy and high-end guiding arent enough, the Infinity is also fully compatible with all of our existing software packages, making it suitable for use as an entry-level imaging camera.

Atik One 9.0 Mono camera with integrated filter wheel

The new Atik One 9.0 with its integrated 5-position filter wheel, USB hub and power socket is essentially an Atik One 6.0 with a higher resolution 9MP ICX814ALG Sony EXview II CCD. This means it has the same remarkable QE as the Atik One 6.0, but smaller pixels.

In this instance smaller pixels can be a bonus because it makes the Atik One 9.0 a very flexible camera.

For example, when using a 4 f/6 refractor with 620mm focal length, sampling will be at 1.2 arc-sec/pixel. Which is good! And using a 10 SCT at f/6.3, binned 2x2, you get 0.97 arcsec/pixel! M106 will fit nicely in the FOV and M82 wont be a little blob on the middle of the frame, and you will still achieve over 2MP image size.

This makes the Atik One 9.0 is an excellent choice for someone imaging with multiple telescopes and focal lengths.

FEATURES
New CCD chamber design, purged with high purity Argon gas - so no condensation and optimum thermal insulation.
Integral 5-position integrated filter wheel with mechanical roller for precise filter placement - ensures the highest levels of reproducibility.
Filter wheel is natively controlled from Atiks own software or via 3rd party programs using the Ascom driver.
Includes a tool for easy filter loading without opening the camera.
Integral USB 2.0 hub and power port for accessories - reduces cable clutter.
Enhanced cooler, capable of reaching a stable -38C below ambient.
Two 1/4 tripod mounting holes provide more options for mounting the camera and accessories.

ATIK 490 EX 9 MP CCD Camera

The Atik 490EX is the highest resolution Atik to date, and one of the most flexible ones. Featuring the latest generation Sony EXview HAD CCD II technology in an area over twice as large than before, this camera has an outstanding Quantum Efficiency, very low noise and excellent thermal management. This model is an ideal match not only for Hyperstar systems, but also most small to midsize telescopes used by astrophotographers.

Its excellent sensitivity and the possibility of binning while maintaining high pixel counts, makes it one of the best cameras for deep-sky astrophotography, with unrivalled flexibility.
The Atik-4 Series cameras are a development of the renowned 3-Series cameras, featuring better cooling and narrower body. They benefit from set point cooling to make taking matching dark frames a snap, and simple 12V power requirement to facilitate field operation. The impressive sensitivity, great cooling and narrow profile, make the Atik Series 4 outstanding CCD cameras to use on modern telescopes, including Hyperstar/Fastar systems.

The Atik 490EX is the new standard for flexibility. Combining 9 million pixels with outstanding Sensitivity and multiple binning levels, opens up the possibility of having a one camera does all concept.

From small refractors to long focal lenght SCTs and RCs, the Atik 490EX is probably the only camera youll ever need for all your telescopes.

Featuring the narrowest body in its class, the Atik 490EX is one of the lightest cameras as well. But dont think there was a compromise regarding cooling performance or stability. Also, the sensor diagonal is big enough to satisfy the need for bigger sky coverage, but small enough to allow the use of 1.25 filters, even with fast f/2 systems.

The Atik 490EX comes with Atiks renowned Capture application which provides a simple and intuitive yet powerful way to acquire images. Tools include a focus assistance readout, image sequencer, guide camera control and integration with Atik filter wheels. Capture aims to take the stress out of imaging, making your time at the telescope more enjoyable. If you require compatibility with other software there are plug-ins for MaxIm DL, Astroart and CCDSoft, as well as a full ASCOM driver.

Also included is Dawn, Atiks new image-processing software. Like our cameras, it was designed from the ground up to be powerful yet easy to use. It allows a sequence of image-processing steps to be represented in the form of a pictorial workflow which can be created with a few mouse clicks and can then be executed very easily for repeatable and speedy results.
