    Great Performance, Reliable Workhorse

    I have been using this camera for over a year now, primarily for narrowband work. When I first purchased it, I had to send it back to Atik for repair due to shutter issues (which turned out to be my fault, since I used the wrong screws), and OPT facilitated the process very efficiently. Both Atik and OPT were had very responsive customer service, and I managed to get my setup up and running as soon as I received it back. I am using the camera with a 5" apo at f/4.5, and I am appreciating the large real estate of the sensor. While it is only slightly larger than a typical DSLR, by CCD standards the chip is pretty large. This allows me to do some rather widefield imaging work whilst having the light gathering capability of a 5" telescope. The EFW-3 works fantastically well with this camera, taking up only 34.5mm of backfocus. This means that you can easily add a DSLR lens adapter and shoot through a camera lens. While there are indeed larger (and costlier) sensors out there, I found this to be sort of a "sweet spot" as the imaging circles of most telescopes aren't usually able to cover anything much larger (unless you pay top dollar for them).
