ATIK One 6.0mp and GP (Guider/Planetary) Camera with OAG Kit
For a limited time, you can get the Atik One with the Atik GP, plus an Off-Axis Guider for an unbelievable price! But it's not just any off-axis guider. It's a smaller version of ATIK's bigger OAG, with the renowed smooth focusing system and moveable prism. A sturdy, reliable unit. 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.
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 a 6MP ICX694AL with the incredibly sensitive EXview HAD II technology and ultra-low read noise. 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.
The Atik GP excels as both a planetary camera and as a guide camera.Its compact size and light weight make it a joy to use on telescopes large and small. The sensor used is the fantastically sensitive 1.3 million pixel ICX445 EXview II CCD from Sony. The GP is capable of up to 30 frames per second and will download both 8bit data with the convenience of saving to standard avi file format, or 12bit for full dynamic rage as Tif and Fits format. When used with the included GPAcquire software the camera is fully configurable with gain, region of interest, data format and a myriad of other settings enabling optimal planetary, solar and lunar imaging. Data can be save direct to disk or initially to memory to optimise frame rates with slightly slower hardware.
The ATIK off-axis guiding system (OAG) features a moving prism which allows selecting the best quality stars in your corrected field of view, while allowing the possibility of using small VGA sensors up to 35mm, multi-megapixel, full frame monsters.The AXIK off-axis guider also features an extremely smooth and precise fine focus system, with extension rings of 3 different lengths, so that different types of cameras reach focus with different types of autoguiders.
System requirements: Pentium IV PC with 512MB RAM, Windows XP/Vista/Win7/Win8 (not RT), CD-ROM drive and USB 2.0 port.
