6 MPixel Atik 460EX

The Atik 460EX offers the the latest and greatest of Sony's CCDs, the ICX694. 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, up to bigger SCTs or RCs. It's excellent sensitivity makes it one of the best cameras for deep-sky astrophotography, offering a logical upgrade path for smaller CCD camera owners looking for uncompromizing performance. With more than twice the imaging area than the venerable ICX285, it will satisfy the need for larger sky coverage while maintaining the excellent low noise characteristics.

The Atik 460EX fully supports 1.25" filters down to f/2, so you won't need to replace any of your current investment in wheel or filters. This is an added advantage when looking to invest in a CCD camera that may go through multiple telescopes.

The Atik-4 Series cameras are a development of the renowned 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 460EX is the new standard for high performance. It's excellent sensitivity provides impressive performance in both narrowband and LRGB techniques. Faint fuzzies are not so faint anymore and stay within reach of the amateur astronomer, even with smaller instruments. The 460EX is a state of the art camera engineered for you.
