QUANTITY

The Atik GP excels as both a planetary camera and as a guider

The Atik GP Mono is capable of up to 30 frames per second and will download both 8bit data with the convenience of saving to standard avi file format, or 12bit for full dynamic range as Tif and Fits format. When used with the included GPAcquire software the camera is fully configurable with gain, region of interest, data format and a myriad of other settings enabling optimal planetary, solar and lunar imaging. Data can be save direct to disk or initially to memory to optimise frame rates with slightly slower hardware. Slowing things down a little the advanced passive cooling allows images of 1mS to several seconds to be collected, ideal for guiding.

The Atik GP Mono is fully compatible with existing Atik software so can be used with our (included) Capture software as well as plug ins for Maxim DL, AstroArt, and more though the ASCOM camera interface. Controlled this way it behaves much the same as our bigger cameras and will allow binning and sub framing. Guiding corrections are passed to the mount using an ASCOM interface. This presents many advantages over the older ST4 guide port method including ease of set up, logging, and precision of guide corrections. But it does require that the mount is ASCOM compatible (as most modern mounts are) and linked to the computer. Guiding older mounts may still be possible with an USB to ST4 converter box, ask your dealer. The GP does not have the active cooling of the Atik Titan so its potential for deep sky imaging is more limited, but it can be used to image the brighter deep sky objects.

Atik GP Mono

SKU: ATK0119

The GP is Atik’s tiniest camera ever!

Measuring only about 57x28mm, it packs much more performance than its size would suggest. It features a Sony 1.3MP ICX445 EXview HAD II CCD, making it ideal as a guide camera.

It also features up to 30fps, which is excellent for planetary work. It has full guider support in Artemis Capture, as well as its own high speed acquisition application, which supports save to memory function.

The Atik GP has some great performance in a small package. A true Guider and Planetary camera.

The Sony ICX445 ExView HAD II CCD features a 1292×964 chip with peak QE of over 55%.
