ATIK One 6mp Monochrome CCD Camera
Integrated, Simple, and Powerful. The Atik One 6.0 Mono CCD camera perfectly reflects Atik's principles in bringing astronomers a high performance, easy to use platform, including an internal filter wheel, in a very compact and light package. It features an improved thermo-electric cooling system, capable of reaching a stable -38C below ambient, and a new CCD chamber design, filled with high-purity Argon, for a dry, condensation free environment with optimal thermal insulation.
Convenience of Use has been one of the primary goals during the design phase of the Atik One. The "One" also features an internal USB hub and accessory power port, so that you can keep the cable clutter under control. Only 2 cables for imaging gear! In addition, two 1/4” tripod mounting holes are available to give users more option ms for cameraounting, other accessories, or for cable management. The 5 position integrated filter wheel features a mechanical roller for filter location ensuring the highest levels of reproducibility image after image. The filter wheel is natively controlled from our software or has an Ascom driver for 3rd party programs. To make filter changing less difficult, the camera comes with a tool that allow filters to be loaded without opening the camera.
At the Heart of the Atik One is the Sony ICX694 Interline CCD image sensor with progressive scan and over 6 million effective pixels. With progressive scan signals for all pixels can be output separately within approximately .04 seconds. This chip features an electronic shutter with variable charge-storage time making it possible to achieve full-frame still images without a mechanical shutter. High sensitivity is made possible with the inclusion of EXview HAD CCD II technology.
Speaking of Software. The Atik One ships with the acclaimed Artemis Capture software, capable of providing camera control, data acquisition, autoguiding and sequencing. Dawn is an innovative image-processing program that takes the hard work out of routine tasks such as calibration, alignment and stacking. Plug-ins are included to allow use with Astroart and Maxim DL. And as an Atik camera owner, all future upgrades to the software will be totally free!
The Atik One series is the rewarding result of Atik's efforts to bring Astro-photographers - amateur or professional - the finest scientific grade CCD camera available in it’s class!
