Quick Overview

CCD cameras have a very low noise thanks to special electronics and particular cooling systems. DSLRs offer, however, at very low prices, large sensors with a lot of pixels. The Atik 383L + combines the best features of both in an exceptional quality camera, at a not too high cost, that will allow you to take fantastic pictures of all the deep sky objects!

The monochrome version of this camera is particularly suitable for use with narrowband nebular filters, with whom you can cancel light pollution and highlight the most difficoult details.

The new Atik 383L+ is an 8-megapixel camera using the Kodak KAF-8300 CCD. A huge amount has been written about this CCD to justify its place in astronomers' hearts. We can sum it up succinctly by saying that it's a fabulous CCD, with a huge number of good-sized pixels, and is currently available at an irresistible price. This sensor has redefined mid-range astro-imaging, making multi-megapixel cooled cameras much more accessible.

Atik prides itself on providing cameras offering the very highest image quality at a reasonable cost. We see no reason to change. We have built on the success of our highly-regarded Atik 314 platform to support Kodak's KAF-8300. This immediately offers a huge number of advantages, including the very low read-noise circuits and the reliability of using this established design.

The key to any high-quality camera is the ability to convert light collected by the sensor into digital information, while ensuring that as little noise as possible is added. The digital image needs to truly reflect the light collected. The Atik 383L+ achieves this, having:

- Very low read-noise, 7 electrons, on a par with many Sony sensors, enabling faint details to be detected.
- Great linearity, with a regression correlation coefficient of R = 0.9998 over the range 1,000 to 64,000, making the camera suitable for sensitive photometric measurements.
- The bias frame histogram from the camera shows the ideal Gaussian shape, indicating that maximum detail can be extracted on processing.

The Atik 383L+ is a dream combination of low-noise electronics and a scientific grade sensor that we are able to offer at a fantastic price. Whether you are an established imager, or are just starting, the Atik 383L+ is a great choice.
