Obviously, we think our cameras are great, but what do other people think? Take a look below.
“I am very happy with my new camera and my narrowband images . The camera is S U P E R !!!! I decided to sell my other camera and get one more ATIK 383L+ for my dual setup.” – George Kylafis, Atik 383L+
“After being involved in video astronomy for the past 9 years, I am truly thrilled with my new Atik Infinity video camera(s). I first bought the color Infinity and liked it so much that I decided to purchase a 2nd mono Infinity camera. These cameras are fun, provide excellent results and most of all very easy to use.
I was treated very well by the Atik team and the support was excellent. I would highly recommend these cameras for near real-time observing.”
“It was an amazing night out (though short and started with clouds), but the camera and software worked amazingly well! WOW! What a leap forward for video astronomy!”
“So here is my first CCD image which is 19×10 in HA no calibration frames…WOW I couldn’t be any more pleased. Can you pass on my thanks to Steve for guiding me to this camera option, I’m sure I’d have been just as happy last night with a 460 but I can already see the advantage of an electric wheel.”
“The customer called me this morning…he raved about the low noise the camera was putting out and thought he wasn’t running those tests correctly because the noise was so low.”
– Jason Farmer, OPT
“The data obtained with the camera during the eclipse were excellent”
– Dr. Shadia Habbal, Institute for Astronomy, Hawaii (Atik 414ex)
“I just wanted to congratulate you for your fantastic service! It’s a value today!! Keep in touch!”
David Fernández Aguirre, Telescopio Mania
“The results are frankly stunning in regards to the ability of this camera to perform as a linear measurement tool: The linearity is within 0.01% of the linear regression up to over 99.5% of its range and the overall r squared approaches 1. … an excellent tool to partner with a small telescope (ie matching the small pixels) as a scientific tool for photometry and by extension more esoteric pursuits such as galaxy morphology analysis and the like.
I’m really suprised by this data but I think Atik should feel very pleased with themselves.”
“Thank you very much, your advice is great.”
– Glen Adao, Atik 4000
“I’m loving the camera – it’s absolutely amazing! The TEC cooler is blowing me away! No more imaging at +31C!”
“Thank you for your exemplary service. Just to let you know, today I have ordered another Atik camera: a 460EXC to use with my C11/Hyperstar rig.”
– Doug Zielke, Atik 450 – and now also Atik 460EX!
And what do the reviews say?
“…a camera with a good dynamic range, impressive sensitivity across a number of wavelengths, high quantum efficiency and very low noise. In other words, it’s capable of taking rich, deep images across all of the colours of the visible spectrum and for a short range beyond.”
“Atik Cameras, based out of Norwich, England, has cultivated a reputation for producing a wide range of high-quality CCD cameras for any experience level and at affordable prices.”
“Although the 490EX’s pixels are quite small at just 3.69×3.69 µm, combining it with a short focal length scope results in a wide field of view with high resolution because of the high pixel count. Such a combination would make for an excellent portable imaging package.”
“The off-axis guider uses a large knurled wheel that allows quick and precise focusing of the guide camera without rotating the GP camera, a well-thought-out feature for off-axis guiders.”
“The Atik One 6.0 performed faultlessly during the review period, producing low noise images and capturing plenty of detail.”
