ATIK Infinity CCD Camera - Monochrome
The first of it's brand to be completely and utterly designed, crafted, and intended for Video Astronomy, this model can proudly claim to possess both the speed and the sensitivity required for this rewarding practice. Through completely new and deeply intuitive software, the Infinity brings the wonders of the cosmos to a screen in just a few easy seconds. Moving on, there is a Sony ICX825 sensor embedded into the Infinity, with EXview HAD CCD II technology for the utmost sensitivity and Quantum Efficiency at a resolution suited towards getting as close to real time viewing as possible! The impressive 6.45 µm pixel size is perfect for a wide range of telescopes, and the sleek rectangular design makes sure that the camera can clear the base on fork-mounted scopes. This means that the Infinity is great for a huge variety of setups, with strong compatibility with all sorts of models- from the most barebones basic of beginner's models, to those outfitted for a professional tier observatory. And to go even further beyond in quality, the creators of the infinity have also included a custom software application utterly dedicated to video astronomy. It features an easily accessed, user friendly interface for optimum usability without compromising on camera control or performance. Live action continuous stacking eliminates background noise so you can see more of what matters- and flexible histogram adjustments make absolutely sure that you need to actively try to miss a detail! The broadcasting features are fully integrated into the camera, making sharing your sky a simple experience. Combined with the voiceover and live web chat features, this allows for a fully interactive experience straight out of the box. Also included in this package are both recording and interactive replay functions, allowing you to remain in total direct control of the display when sharing your sessions with family and friends.
This particular model works in Monochrome, creating the most exacting possible detail in a black and white view of reality. Whether looking around your home or to the stars, this model has the most exacting detail possible. What can truly be said to be special about this model however, is that while other video astronomy cameras are generally mono purpose due to being scaled up guide or security cameras, the Infinity is a scaled up version of a high-end, fully fledged 16bit camera originally developed for OEM use in microscopy and inspection applications. This makes it a perfect model for capturing high quality images at live view frame rates, intended for the most demanding users. With that in mind however, the Infinity can still then be used as an exceptional guide camera, as it features a standard ST4 guide port for direct connection to your mount of choice- and as if all of the above features weren't enough? The Infinity is also fully compatible with all existing ATIK software packages.

Product QuestionsWould this camera be good for sun photography? If not which camera can work with Lunt 60mm or Lunt 80mm scope?
ThanksQuestion by: Robert on Feb 24, 2016 7:48:00 PMThis camera uses an ICX825 sensor, which would be fantastic for solar photography. The problem is that it's actually a bit too sensitive, so you may need to add an ND filter between the camera and the blocking filter to dim the image down a bit.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Feb 25, 2016 3:29:00 PM
