Do not accept compromises: the Atik 460EX is the best CCD camera that provides a sensor with high sensitivity, resolution and size, but that works perfectly even with 31.8mm diameter filters! All these features are offered together with an excellent cooling system and to a light, compact body, perfect for use with any type of telescope!
The Atik 460EX offers the the latest and greatest of Sony's CCDs, the ICX694. Featuring the latest generation EXview technology, this camera has an outstanding Quantum Efficiency, very low noise and excellent thermal management. This model is an ideal match to telescopes commonly used by amateurs, up to bigger SCTs or RCs. It’s excellent sensitivity makes it one of the best cameras for deep-sky astrophotography, offering a logical upgrade path for smaller CCD camera owners looking for uncompromizing performance. With more than twice the imaging area than the venerable ICX285, it will satisfy the need for larger sky coverage while maintaining the excellent low noise characteristics.
The Atik 460EX fully supports 1.25" filters down to f/2, so you won't need to replace any of your current investment in wheel or filters. This is an added advantage when looking to invest in a CCD camera that may go through multiple telescopes.
The Atik-4 Series cameras are a development of the renowned 3-Series cameras, featuring better cooling and narrower body. They benefit from setpoint cooling to make taking matching dark frames a snap, and simple 12V power requirement to facilitate field operation. The impressive sensitivity, great cooling and narrow profile, make the Atik Series 4 outstanding CCD cameras to use on modern telescopes, including Hyperstar/Fastar systems.

Camera molto sensibile ottimo il rumore, veramente basso, buono anche il peso della camera stessa che non va ad incidere molto sul focheggiatore, consumo molto basso, con raffreddamento acceso mi consuma meno di una reflex digitale quindi ho più durata per la batteria, i programmi di utilizzo sono buoni e facilissimi da utilizzare.
Just made a quick test and the results are really good. Waiting for goods conditions to make further ones. From what I've seen Highly recomended camera.
Really good camera, remarkable sensitivity, fast image transfer.
I made the comparison with my old 314 +, I'd better see the same sensitivity for 460ex. And the sensor has doubled in size.
Considerable assistance from Filippo from order to delivery. A sales site that I highly recommend.
