About this product

Model:  atik-460EX-mono

The new Atik 460EX CCD camera features the new Sony ICX694 sensor with the same EXview HAD CCD II technology present in the Atik 428EX but with more than twice the number of pixels and, most importantly, over twice the image sensor area (12.49mm Horizontal x 9.99mm Vertical). It also features similar high sensitivity, excellent QE and low noise characteristics as the 428EX making it a true workhorse for narrowband and LRGB deep-sky astrophotography.

An ideal match to many of the telescopes commonly used by amateurs astro-imagers, including the larger SCT’s and RC’s. It also has one of the narrowest and lightest bodies in its class, this has been achieved without compromising cooling performance or stability. Also, the sensor diagonal is big enough to satisfy the need for greater sky coverage but small enough to allow the use of 1.25” filters, even with fast f/2 systems.

Capture

The Atik 460EX comes with Atik’s renowned Capture application which provides a simple and intuitive yet powerful way to acquire images. Tools include a focus assistance readout, image sequencer, guide camera control and integration with Atik filter wheels. Capture aims to take the stress out of imaging, making your time at the telescope more enjoyable. If you require compatibility with other software there are plugins for MaxIm DL, Astroart and CCDSoft, as well as a full ASCOM driver.

Dawn

Also included is Dawn, Atik’s new image-processing software. Like our 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 of a pictorial workflow which can be created with a few mouse clicks and can then be executed very easily for repeatable and speedy results.
