Product Details

  • The Atik 460EX features an outstanding Quantum Efficiency, very low noise and excellent thermal management. This model is an ideal match to telescopes commonly used by amateurs, up to bigger SCTs and RCs. It's excellent sensitivity makes it one of the best cameras for deep-sky astrophotography, with unrivaled flexibility.

    The Atik-4 Series cameras are a development of the renowned 3-Series cameras, featuring better cooling and narrower body. They benefit from set point cooling to make taking matching dark frames a snap, and 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.

    The Atik 460EX is the new standard for high performance. Its excellent sensitivity provides impressive performance in both narrowband and LRGB techniques. Faint targets are not so faint anymore and stay within reach of the amateur astronomer, even with smaller instruments. The 460EX is a state of the art camera engineered for you. Featuring the narrowest body in its class, the Atik 460EX is one of the lightest cameras as well. But don't think there was a compromise regarding cooling performance or stability. Also, the sensor diagonal is big enough to satisfy the need for bigger sky coverage, but small enough to allow the use of 1.25 inch filters, even with fast f/2 systems.

    The Atik 460EX comes with Atik's renowned Capture application which provides a simple and intuitive yet powerful way to acquire images. Tools include a focus assistance readout, image sequencer, guide camera control and integration with Atik filter wheels. Capture aims to take the stress out of imaging, making your time at the telescope more enjoyable. If you require compatibility with other software there are plug-ins for MaxIm DL, Astroartand CCDSoft, as well as a full ASCOM driver.

    Also included is Dawn, Atik's new image-processing software. Like Atik cameras, it was designed from the ground up to be powerful yet easy to use. It allows a sequence of image-processing steps to be represented in the form of a pictorial workflow which can be created with a few mouse clicks and can then be executed very easily for repeatable and speedy results.
