    Atik Apx26 Color Camera:
    The Sweet Spot for Sensor Size in Astrophotography

    Tthe APS-C sized IMX571 sensor on the Apx26 hits a sweet spot for many astrophotographers. Almost all astrograph telescopes on the market today can produce round stars in the corners on APS-C sensors, which makes the Apx26 a perfect fit for most imagers. The round body shape and narrow, 89mm diameter chassis also makes it a great fit for Celestron RASA and Hyperstar imagers without interfering with much of the light path.

    Atik Apx26 Astrophotography Camera Specifications

    With a high resolution of 6244 x 4168 pixels, you can capture incredible detail on astronomical objects. Despite the high resolution, its 3.76µm pixel size provides an ideal sample size for a wide range of telescopes. The 16-bit ADC ensures color accuracy without any artifacts like banding in gradients. The sensor can be cooled down to -35 degrees Celsius below ambient temperature, allowing noise levels to become almost unnoticeable. The Apx26 Momo has an onboard 512MB image buffer for long image exposures and uses a USB 3 connection to your computer, ensuring that you don’t lose frames or suffer artifacts in your Astro images.
