ATIK Instruments 11000C Color CCD Camera with Kodak KAI 11002 CCD -

This is the top-of-the-range camera available from ATIK and is the result of extensive design and development. It incorporates a huge 35mmx35mm sensor. This is the camera for the uncompromising user looking to create stunning high-resolution images.
The ATIK 11000COLOUR uses the Kodak KAI 11002 CCD and comes in one-shot color versions. It is difficult to get an impression of just how big the sensor is without seeing it first hand, but the graphic below is intended to give some idea. The resulting images can be amazingly detailed, and can be printed out at A3 size or beyond or simply enjoyed on a computer monitor.

Frame:

  • The Kodak sensors require dark frames to be used for calibration, and these must be taken at the same temperature as the primary image

Weather and Wind:

  • For more demanding use, water can be pumped though the camera's internal heat exchanger. When water cooling is employed, the maximum amount of cooling depends on the water temperature, with approximately 45 degrees of cooling being available using water from a typical cold tap

Features:

  • The power supplied to this heater is controllable through software so that it can be adapted to the environmental conditions
  • A high-efficiency desiccant is used to dry the air inside the sensor chamber, preventing internal condensation, while condensation on the outside of the camera is avoided with the use of heater elements which gently warm the window
  • The cameras have only two sockets - a 2.1mm socket for the 12V power supply and a USB2 port for communicating with the computer - and they are compatible with ATIK's highly acclaimed Capture software as well as AstroArt, CCDSoft and MaximDL
  • Such efficient cooling cuts thermal noise to an absolute minimum and reduces the prevalence of hot pixels, but it raises the risk of condensation forming in or on the camera
  • These have gained a great reputation in astrophotography and offer qualities not available in the Sony CCDs
  • While the other cameras in the ATIK range use Sony sensors, the large-format cameras incorporate Kodak devices
  • The ATIK large-format cameras have been designed and built to fulfil the needs of the most demanding users, whilst offering an unparalleled simplicity of use
