Astrofest is the UK’s premier astronomy conference and exhibition and we are pleased to confirm that we will be exhibiting at the show again this year. On the 31st January and 1st February you can find us on stands 11 and 12 at the Kensington Conference and Events Centre .

As keen astrophotographers, we are looking forward to seeing what the rest of the event has in store in 2020 and have prepared our offering in keeping with this exciting event. Astrofest 2020 provides us with the opportunity to showcase the follow up to our first ever CMOS camera, the Horizon II, to the wider astrophotography community for the first time. Of course, this provides attendees with the opportunity to get a feel for the camera in person whilst learning about the improvements that have been introduced in the second generation of the Horizon range.

Additionally, we can also confirm that Astrofest will mark the launch of the ACIS 7.1, our fastest camera yet. The ACIS 7.1 is a CMOS camera which sees the further expansion of our CMOS camera ranges and is suitable for both planetary and deep sky imaging.

Furthermore, those visiting Astrofest will be able to view a live demonstration of the high frame rate that the aforementioned cameras provide. Additionally, Astrofest represents a great chance for members of the Atik team to meet and have lively and informative discussions with a variety of members of the astrophotography, and wider astronomy, community. A particularly interesting discussion point could revolve around the CCD vs CMOS debate, of which we have produced a video series, and what the ON Semiconductor announcement from last year means for CCD’s in the immediate and long-term future.

Whether you want to have a discussion around sensor technology, view our demonstrations and new cameras, or simply to say hello, all are welcome to visit us on stands 11 and 12 at Astrofest and we very much look forward to seeing you then!
