As opposed to monochrome imaging, using color CCD cameras are more straightforward since you don't use any filter wheels. While monochrome allows the luxury of using filters to enhance certain wavelengths and nanometers, color sensors provide more natural color exposures.
The Atik 11000 is a very high resolution, large-format cooled CCD astronomy camera. Atik's top-of-the-range camera is the result of extensive design and development. It incorporates a huge 35mm x 35mm sensor, and is the camera for the uncompromising user who is looking to create stunning high-resolution images.... Learn MoreFREE SHIPPINGModel#: ATK0049(48 States)

The new Atik 320E is a 2-megapixel camera offering the opportunity to take stunning wide-field images of the sky at high resolution. Like the Atik 314E, its relatively small pixels make it ideally suited to popular short focal length refractors.
The sheer number of pixels allows images to be taken at extremely high resolution. These look great on the web, or printed at A4 size and greater.
Like its siblings, the Atik 314E and Atik 314L+, the Atik 320E is based on the highly regarded Atik 3 series platform. This gives the lowest read-noise of any camera currently available to amateur astronomers. The platform features a USB 2.0 interface for fast readout. The Atik 320E also boasts highly efficient cooling and low weight.... Learn MoreFREE SHIPPINGModel#: ATK0066(48 States)
The new Atik 383L+ is an 8-megapixel camera using the Kodak KAF-8300 CCD. A huge amount has been written about this CCD to justify its place in astronomers' hearts. We can sum it up succinctly by saying that it's a fabulous CCD, with a huge number of good-sized pixels, and is currently available at an irresistible price....
