    Atik One 6.0, GP & OAG Camera Kit

    For a limited time, you can get the Atik One with the Atik GP, plus an off-axis guider for an unbelievable price! But it's not just any off-axis guider. It's a smaller version of Atik's bigger OAG, with the renowned smooth focusing system and movable prism. A sturdy, reliable unit.

     

    Atik One 6.0 Monochrome CCD Camera

    Integrated and powerful. The Atik One series embodies Atik's principles bringing you a high performance, simple to use platform, with internal filter wheel, all in a very compact and light package. It features an improved cooler, capable of reaching a stable -38ºC below ambient, and a new CCD chamber design, filled with high purity Argon, for a dry, condensation free environment and optimal thermal insulation.

    Convenience of use has been key during the design. The Atik One also features an internal USB hub and accessory power port, so that you can keep the cable clutter under control. Only two cables for your imaging gear! In addition to this, two 1/4” tripod mounting holes are available, to give you more options for mounting the camera, other accessories, or for managing the cables.

    The five position integrated filter wheel features a mechanical roller for filter location ensuring the highest levels of reproducibility image after image. The filter wheel is natively controlled from Atik's software or has an ASCOM driver for third party programs. To make filter changing less of a chore the camera comes with a tool to allow filters to be loaded without opening the camera.

    The Atik One ships with the acclaimed Artemis Capture software, capable of providing camera control, autoguiding and sequencing. And as an Atik camera owner, all future upgrades to the software will be totally free!

    The Atik One series is the culmination of Atik's efforts to bring you the finest scientific grade CCD camera available in it’s class.

     

    Atik GP Monochrome CCD Camera

    The Atik GP excels as both a planetary camera and as a guide camera. Its compact size and light weight make it a joy to use on telescopes large and small. The sensor used is the fantastically sensitive 1.3 million pixel ICX445 EXview II CCD from Sony. The GP is capable of up to 30 frames per second and will download both 8-bit data with the convenience of saving to standard avi file format, or 12-bit for full dynamic range as Tif and Fits format. When used with the included GPAcquire software the camera is fully configurable with gain, region of interest, data format and a myriad of other settings enabling optimal planetary, solar and lunar imaging. Data can be save direct to disk or initially to memory to optimise frame rates with slightly slower hardware.

    Slowing things down a little the advanced passive cooling allows images of 1 ms to several seconds to be collected, ideal for guiding. The camera is fully compatible with existing Atik software so can be used with the (included) Capture software as well as plug ins for Maxim DL, AstroArt, and more though the ASCOM camera interface. Controlled this way it behaves much the same as Atik's bigger cameras and will allow binning and sub framing.  Guiding corrections are passed to the mount using an ASCOM interface. This is presents many advantages over the older ST4 guide port method including ease of set up, logging, and precision of guide corrections. But it does require that the mount is ASCOM compatible (as most modern mounts are) and linked to the computer. Guiding older mounts may still be possible with an USB to ST4 converter box, ask your dealer.

    The GP does not have the active cooling of the Atik Titan so its potential for deep sky imaging is more limited, but it can be used to image the brighter deep sky objects.

     

    Atik One OAG Off-Axis Guider

    • Atik Off Axis Guider is a complete system featuring a precise fine-focusing system
    • The moving prism helps you select the perfect star for your guiding needs
    • This is a smaller version of the original Atik OAG, made for the Atik One cameras
    • 5mm of focus travel

     

    The Atik One OAG is slightly smaller than the original Atik OAG, but has all of the original features that make it an easy-to-use off-axis guider, especially when used in conjunction with the Atik GP guide camera, included in this kit. The two components match up beautifully and attach easily to the Atik One camera on one side, and your telescope on the other. You can attach the OAG assembly to your telescope using the included 2” adapter or via a T-thread accessory.

    The pickup prism inside the OAG diverts some of the light coming through your telescope and sends it to your guide camera. The prism can be adjusted to compensate for use on different types of telescopes.

    The Atik One OAG has an extremely smooth focusing mechanism that is fast and easy to adjust. To focus, all you need to do is turn the focusing ring clockwise to move the camera support down, or counter-clockwise to move it up. There is 5mm of total travel available, allowing you to easily focus the Atik GP guide camera.
