The CCD chamber is kept moisture free by using extremely efficient molecular sieves as desiccant. We understand that many of our products are technical in nature and require support. Ordered the wrong product? So how does Atik fair with me as a company, well it just so happens that I had to send my camera away for service due to excessive moisture causing Ice Crystals during cooling, I filed a support ticket with them and within a few days I got my camera back completely moisture free, I do not blame the camera here for the moisture, but more the fact that when I had my observatory located 15 miles away, I used to forget to switch the camera power off which would push a lot of moisture through the camera. I have one of these now for use with my p and since changing to this from my old qhy8l I am getting large reflection halos around the stars. We are using the latest, high-efficiency Peltier modules, tiny temperature sensors located under the CCD and a centrifugal fan and heatsink. This design by Atik makes it easier for enthusiasts to access multi-megapixel, cooled cameras more easily with its irresistible price.

This might appear complex to judge but fortunately there are three simple tests which show how well the camera performs against these criteria. This immediately offers a huge number of advantages including the very low read noise circuits and the reliability from using this established design. But the service from Atik was simply awesome.

This cartrigde is exchangeable. The camera has a standard T thread connection on its front and can be used with our new Filterwheel 3383 Off Axis Guider unit.

Mating the camera to the filterwheel was relatively easy, I placed a thin cork shim onto the male thread of the filterwheel and screwed the camera on and adjusted the rotation of the filterwheel adapter to make sure the camera was at the right angle, I used the rubber shim to stop the metal to metal binding which makes it difficult to remove later, adding in the cork shim still allows it to be tightened up.

The graph to the right shows this with the camera having an extremely linear response right up to the saturation value of We are using the latest, high-efficiency Peltier modules, tiny temperature sensors located under the CCD and a centrifugal fan and heatsink.

This gives read noise in AD units. Rest assured that our team of Telescope and Telescope Accessory experts will be standing by To determine read noise we simply look at the standard deviation of pixel values in a bias frame.
