Thanks to the Atik Titan you no longer have to choose between planetary and deep-sky imaging. You can now do both, making this the perfect newcomer's camera. As a deep-sky camera, the cooled CCD with low read-noise allows detection of faint details over long exposures. Planetary imaging moves the goal-posts from sensitivity to resolution, requiring fast frame rates to capture moments of best seeing. Excelling at both, the Titan is the perfect introductory camera.
In high-speed mode, the Titan is able to record up to 15 frames per second in uncompressed 16-bit format. The high frame rate is important in order to capture moments of steady 'seeing' when the image becomes clear. The 16-bit digitisation makes it easier to pull spectacular detail out of low contrast objects such as the surface of the Sun, or the cloud belts of Saturn.
The Titan has a remarkable 5-electron read-noise in deep-sky mode. This is better than that of many astro-cameras costing thousands of pounds. The low read-noise allows faint detail to be teased out of the Titan's images. The Titan also features advanced cooling for long-exposure imaging.
The Titan's autoguide port and high resolution makes it usable also as guide camera (note: for this type of use, we suggest the monochrome version since it has more sensitivity). It sports a standard ST-4 type guide socket on the back for direct connection to a mount. Guiding can be performed through our Capture software, or programs such as Maxim DL, Astroart and CCDSoft.
Included in the box:
camera body with 1.25'' adapter
