ATIK 414EX Monochrome CCD Camera

The Atik 414EX is a worthy successor to the 314L+, one of the best cameras for astrophotography in the industry. Includes the new ICX825 sensor, the much anticipated replacement for the highly esteemed ICX285. The same EXview HAD CCD II employed on the 428EX, 460EX, and 490EX is also used on the 414EX. This coupled with a larger pixel size gives this camera greater sensitivity than anything that could previously be acquired in this price range.

In comparison with the 314L+ at 650nm, the 414EX is 60% more sensitive. Actually, the 414EX has greater sensitivity than the already impressive 460EX, making this the ideal camera for the imaging aficionado with budget constraints.

However, the 414EX's sensitivity isn't its only outstanding feature. Its cooler is regulated, allowing your image calibration to remain consistent, and has the ability to comfortably achieve -30ºC below ambient. With regards to calibration, for the majority of applications, the camera has a dark noise so low that dark frames become an option instead of a requirement, allowing you to spend more time on imaging.

The Atik 414EX's compact size makes it usable with Fastar/ Hyperstar configurations with absolutely no obstruction even on the 6" model. Stress on the corrector plate is kept a minimum due to the light weight of the camera.

Super sensitive and low noise! Awesome CCD
This is an amazing little CCD. I upgraded to it from the ATIK 314L+. Fantastic purchase. I can tell how much more sensitive it is and am very impressed with the noise levels.
