Atik Titan Color CCD Camera
|The Atik Ttian Color CCD is the one-shot color version of Atik's entry level camera with a 659 x 494 pixel array. The Titan can serve as a beginner CCD camera, planetary imager or guide camera. |
Excelling at both deep space and planetary imaging, the Titan is the perfect introductory camera with a very affordable price tag.
And it's blue!
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 digitization 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.
Deep Sky Imaging
The Titan has a remarkable 5-electron read-noise in deep-sky mode. This is better than that of many cameras costing several times as much. 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 mix of high sensitivity and high frame rates makes it an ideal high-end guide camera. 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.
System requirements: Pentium III PC with 128MB RAM, Windows XP/Vista/Win7, CD-ROM drive and USB 2.0 port.
