Quick Overview

The Atik 414EX follows on the footsteps of the 314L+, one of the best cameras available for astrophotography. It features the brand new ICX825, the much awaited successor to the venerable ICX285. It also features the same EXview HAD CCD II™ that is used on the 428EX, 460EX and 490EX, which combined with the larger pixel size makes it sensitive beyond anything previously seen in this price range.


The new sensor is provided in the body of the famous series 4, with a very good cooling system and a lightweight, compact body, perfect for use with any type of telescope!

The Atik 414EX follows on the footsteps of the 314L+, one of the best cameras available for astrophotography. It features the brand new ICX825, the much awaited successor to the venerable ICX285. It also features the same EXview HAD CCD II™ that is used on the 428EX, 460EX and 490EX, which combined with the larger pixel size makes it sensitive beyond anything previously seen in this price range.

The new sensor is provided in the body of the famous series 4, with a very good cooling system and a lightweight, compact body, perfect for use with any type of telescope!

But how much more sensitive is it? Compared with the 314L+ at 650nm, the 414EX is 60% more sensitive. In fact, the 414EX is even more sensitive than the already spectacular 460EX, making it the perfect camera for the enthusiast with a limited budget. The graph below shows the striking difference between the ICX285 and ICX825:


 

But the 414EX is more than just sensitivity. It’s cooler can easily achieve over 30ºC below ambient, and is regulated, so that your image calibration is consistent. And speaking of calibration, for most applications, the camera has such a low dark noise, that dark frames are an option rather than a requirement.

The Atik 414EX narrow footprint means that is can be used on Fastar/Hyperstar configurations, with zero obstruction even on the 6″ version. Low weight also keeps the stress on the corrector plate to a bare minimum.
