Frequently asked Questions
Lots of Forums and Magazines publish astronomical pictures.
Astronomical Imaging can be both massively rewarding and rather frustrating. Talking to like minded astronomers will help emphasise the former. Again the Atik Instruments forum can be useful (you don’t need to have an Atik camera to join). Also UKAI is well recommended. There are many hundreds of astronomy societies that meet throughout the world so its worthwhile finding your local one.
We provide our Capture software and plug ins for Maxim, Astro Art and CCD Soft. In addition Prism, PHD and K3CCDTools can support Atik Cameras.
Check the softwares websites to find which models are supported.
The back focus distances are described in the mechanical drawings you'll find in the product pages.
We make all our first announcements on the Atik Instruments yahoo group. When the details firm up we will post a news item on this website.
