ATIK - 428EX Color CCD Camera
The New ATIK 428EX is the first CCD camera available to astro-imagers that uses Sony’s state of the art ICX674 2.8MP sensor which features the latest generation EXview technology, This camera has outstanding Quantum Efficiency, very Low Noise and excellent Thermal Management. This model is an ideal match to telescopes used by astronomers eager to take the jump beyond Planetary imaging. It’s excellent sensitivity makes it one of the best cameras for Deep-Sky astrophotography, surpassing its forerunner, the acclaimed ICX285.
The Atik-4 Series cameras are a development of the 3-Series cameras, featuring better cooling and narrower body. They benefit from advanced controled thermoelectric cooling to make taking matching dark frames a snap, plus 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.
Atik's highly-acclaimed Capture software is included for camera control and data acquisition, and plug-ins are included to allow use with Astroart and Maxim DL.
A universal (110-230V) power adapter is optional.
