Atik CCD Cameras
Atik CCD Cameras
Atik was launched in 2003 by amateur astronomers Steve Chambers and Rui Tripa, who were frustrated in their search for reasonably-priced astronomical imaging equipment. Unable to find what they were looking for within their budget, Chambers and Tripa set out to create their own line of cost-effective astronomical imaging equipment, and Atik was born. Today, Atik is Europe’s leading CCD camera manufacturer and is recognized worldwide as a leader in astroimaging.
Originally, Atik was only easily accessible in Europe. Now the popular Atik CCD cameras for are more available to the U.S. market. Atik CCD cameras for astrophotography are renowned for their remarkable sensitivity, low noise levels and extremely reasonable prices.
