Product Details

  • The Atik Apx26 Color astrophotography camera offers incredible versatility in imaging thanks to its large Sony IMX571 CMOS sensor that boasts a resolution of 26 megapixels.

    The APS-C sized sensor on the Apx26 is perfect for astrophotography. The sensor matches well with most telescopes, allowing for sharp and round stars all the way to the edge of the image. The small Atik Apx26 form factor ensures that the camera fits well on any telescope and mount configuration, including those with the camera front-mounted such as RASA and Hyperstar telescope configurations.
