    ATIK Titan Color CCD Camera

    Atik Titan CCD Camera - Sony ICX424 Color Sensor

    The Atik Titan is three CCD Cameras in one! In high speed mode, the Atik Titan is able to record up to 15 frames per second in uncompressed 16-bit format. The high frame rate is important in order to capture moments of steady "seeing" where the image becomes clear. The 16-bit digitalization makes it easier to pull spectacular detail out of low contrast objects like the surface of the Sun of the cloud belts of Saturn.

    As a deep sky camera, the Atik Titan has a remarkable 5 electron read-noise in deep sky mode, which is better than many astro-cameras costing thousands of dollars. The low read-noise allows faint detail to be teased out of the Titan's images. The Atik Titan also features advanced cooling for long-exposure imaging.

    As a guide camera, the Atik Titan's mix of high sensitivity and high frame rates makes it an ideal high end guide camera. It sports a standard ST-4 type guide socket on the back for direct connection to a mount. Guiding can be performed through Atik's included Capture software or programs like Maxim DL, AstroArt and CCD-Soft.

    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 a a pictorial work-flow which can be created with a few mouse clicks and can be executed very easily for repeatable and speedy results.

    About the Sony ICX424AL Sensor

    The ICX424AL is a diagonal 6mm (Type 1/3) interline CCD solid-state image sensor with a square pixel array suitable for EIA black-and-white cameras. Progressive scan allows all pixel's signals to be output independently within approximately 1/60 second.

    This chip features an electronic shutter with variable charge-storage time which makes it possible to realize full-frame still images without a mechanical shutter. High sensitivity and low dark current are achieved through the adoption of the HAD (Hole- Accumulation Diode) sensors. This chip is suitable for applications such as FA and surveillance cameras.

    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question
    • I was looking at a good entry level CCD and your Titan was recommended. Is there a users manual to the unit setup and software manual available so I can see what I would be getting myself into. I've never used a CCD or even seen the software that captures

      The manual for the Atik Titan can be found here: Please look this over and let us know if you have any more questions prior to making your decision.
