Monochrome SOLD OUT!

Now $1299 AUD each!

 Monochrome 314L+ SOLD OUT!
(Was A$1799)

The differences between the Atik 314L cameras and 314L+ cameras is that the 314L+ has:

  • Temperature regulated cooling and temperature set point capability!
  • Improved cooling capacity, as the 314L+ can reach 27°C below ambient temperature!
  • The 314L+ is a 1.45MP camera
  • No external boxes required.
    The entire regulation system is built into the camera and is controlled by software.
  • Notably, the Atik 314L+ maintains the ultra low noise levels of the 314L and its compactness!

The new Atik 383L+ is an outstanding 8 Megapixel camera which uses the Kodak KAF-8300 CCD. A huge amount has been written about this fabulous CCD with its huge number of good-sized pixels. This sensor should redefine mid-range astro-imaging as it makes high level cooled camera imaging available at sensible pricing! 

  • Kodak 8.3 million 5.4um square pixels
  • Ultra low readout noise for outstanding sensitivity (7e-)
  • Lightweight
  • Highly efficient set-point cooling to 40°C below ambient

Atik 420

Monochrome CCD 
cooled camera

Super low price!

 
Now $999 AUD each

One monochrome 420 camera in stock!
(Was A$1499)

The Atik 420 is the first camera in its class to offer high performance well-regulated cooling, low power consumption and a narrow body.
The all-new 420 features a 2 million pixel Sony ICX274 sensor with 4.4um square pixels and has very low noise electronics for best sensitivity. 
It matches particularly well the 6" (150mm) and 8" (200mm) HyperStar and Fastar systems, where its narrow body and low heat dissipation are quite helpful.
A narrow camera body is virtually a prerequisite if the camera is to be placed in front of a telescope for prime focus imaging, such as in HyperStar or Fastar systems or in custom-designed systems.
The Atik 4-series cameras are a new development of the popular 3-series cameras. Requires 12Vdc power.
The new Atik 420 features temperature set-point cooling which makes taking dark frames easier. Regulated cooling to -30 degrees C below ambient temperature. Its desiccant port is easily accessible from its exterior body.

What's in the box?

  • Camera body with 1.25" adaptor
  • 3 meter USB cable
  • 1.8 meter battery power connector (Car lighter plug)
  • CD-ROM with drivers, software and User's manual (PDF)
  • Quickstart guide (paper)
  • Our highly acclaimed software, Capture, is included for camera control and data acquisition. Plug-ins are included to allow use with AstroArt and MaximDL.
  • Also included is Dawn, our new image-processing software!

 

 
NOTES

Some cameras are available upon your order only and a deposit with your order is required.

Insurance cover for goods in transit is available from us for only $2 per $100 value of goods. Please advise us if you require this option when ordering.

Please consider insurance because we are not responsible for loss of parcels or damage sustained by parcels - the carrier is responsible! We do pack well!

Please do NOT write <fragile> on anything you send to us as doing so greatly increases the risk of damage. Please try to "double-box" all items sent to us.

The number of pixels is not the best indicator of performance!
This is especially true for deep-space astrophotography where low noise is most important!

 There are many other factors to consider, such as; light sensitivity (QE), CCD read noise, USB 2.0, Gaussian noise distribution, read
noise frame FFT, overall SNR, light response linearity, regulated cooling precision, ADC (16-bit?), etc...

All specifications, prices, etc.,

Electric filter wheel
with USB control

New low price!

$799 AUD

Based on feedback from many customers, Atik engineers have created the all-new Atik 2" Electric Filter Wheel which incorporates motorized filter changing operation.
In-stock 2" version has 5 x 2" disc.  

  • Features interchangeable filter wheel discs and has large 54mm openings on both sides. Easily supports sensors up to full frame (35mm) format
  • Four (4) filter wheel discs are available; 5 x 2" (mounted filters), 9 x 1.25" (mounted), 5 x 50.8mm (unmounted) and 7 x 36mm (unmounted filters) 
  • The EFW2-USB's body is slim at only 19.5mm in thickness - and it's lightweight, too!
  • The EFW2-USB has a USB interface which enables computer control through a standalone program or through ASCOM compliant software
  • Additionally, the EFW2-USB will work with Atik's Artemis Capture software - for easy, simple and efficient operation
  • Closed design! No light enters the wheel, thereby eliminating the possibility of light leaks in heavily light-polluted regions
  • The central support prevents bending of the wheel's walls when using heavier cameras
  • Magnetic sensors! No LEDs are inside the wheel - allowing precise positioning of filters
  • Draws 220mA when the motor is operating, 5mA when stopped
  • 2" model includes 1.25" adaptor, T-thread camera adaptor, cigarette lighter lead assembly, 3m USB cable and a locking ring
  • Filters simply screw in once the wheel is opened up

Atik metal Off Axis Guider (OAG)
(Yes, metal design - not plastic)

New low price!

$349 AUD
In stock!

One of the key features of the Atik OAG is a moving prism system. Thanks to this new design, you can choose from a wider variety of stars within the corrected field of view.

  • The Atik OAG allows the use of up to full-frame 35mm CCDs
  • Features a moving prism to help you select the perfect star for your guiding needs
  • Velvety smooth and highly precise fine-focusing system.
  • Three extension rings of
    various lengths means it can reach focus with many camera systems.

Atik OAG Camera Adaptor

$99 AUD
In stock!

  • The Atik OAG camera adaptor allows the installation of the Atik OAG onto a CCD camera - without having to use an EFW2 filter wheel in between the OAG and a CCD camera
  • The OAG camera adaptor will maintain the correct distance to allow focusing of a guiding camera
  • In addition, full camera rotation is possible because this adaptor uses the same camera adaptors as the EFW2
