Atik 428EX Monochrome CCD Camera - Sony ICX674 Sensor
The Atik 428EX is the first camera available to astronomers that uses Sony’s state of the art ICX674 2.8MP sensor. Featuring the latest generation EXview technology, this camera has an outstanding Quantum Efficiency, very low noise and excellent thermal management. This model is an ideal match to telescopes commonly used by amateurs. It’s excellent sensitivity makes it one of the best cameras for deep-sky astrophotography, surpassing its forerunner, the acclaimed ICX285.
The Atik-4 Series cameras are a development of the 3-Series cameras, featuring better cooling and narrower body. They benefit from setpoint cooling to make taking matching dark frames a snap, and simple 12V power requirement to facilitate field operation. The impressive sensitivity, great cooling and narrow profile, make the Atik Series 4 outstanding CCD cameras to use on modern telescopes, including Hyperstar/Fastar systems.
The Atik 428EX is a perfect match for narrowband imaging. It’s excellent
Quantum Efficiency in OIII, Ha and SII, make it one of the best cameras available for this demanding technique. Advanced color mapping compositions can be done with lower integration time, getting more out of your imaging session. More data, better data.
Featuring the narrowest body in its class, the Atik 428EX is one of the
lightest cameras as well. But don’t think there was a compromise regarding
cooling performance or stability. The cooler has been engineered for low power use, making your field sessions last longer. The desiccant port is now easily accessible from the exterior.
