  • The Atik 383L+ CCD Camera enables enthusiasts to achieve stunning wide field images of the sky at high-resolution
  • Operates a front-illuminated Blue Plus Kodak KAF-8300 Sensor and delivers highly efficient setpoint cooling to a 40 degrees max below ambient
  • The platform on the 383L+ CCD Camera features a USB 2.0 interface for fast readout, low weight, and highly efficient cooling
  • Includes superb software for image acquisition and preprocessing
  • Features a memory buffer to reduce readout artifacts, externally accessible desiccant plugs, and a high-quality mechanical shutter as well

Redefining mid-range astro-imaging, the new Atik 383L+ is an 8 Megapixel camera featuring the Kodak KAF-8300 CCD. This design by Atik makes it easier for enthusiasts to access multi-megapixel, cooled cameras more easily with its irresistible price. The 383L+ is a fantastic CCD with a huge number of good-sized pixels.

ATIK provides cameras with very high image quality but at affordable prices. The ATIK 383L+ is no exception, offering the same high quality at reasonable cost. The Platform 3 by ATIK is featured with the 383L+ and it supports the Kodak KAF-8300. The advantages of this design provide very low read-noise circuits and reliability.

The camera can be used with either the EFW-U or our new EFW2 and Off Axis Guider (coming soon). Standard 1.25 filters can be used for focal ratios of f/5 and above without vignetting. Faster focal ratios will need flat-field correction or 36 mm filters.

Atik 383L+ CCD Camera Monochrome Features:

  • Ultra low read-noise for great sensitivity
  • 8.3 Million 5.4 µm square pixels for high-resolution imaging
  • Lightweight - no flexure of the telescope focuser tube
  • Highly efficient setpoint cooling to 40 degrees max below ambient
  • High-Quality mechanical shutter
  • Externally accessible dessicant plugs
  • Great software for image acquisition and pre-processing
  • Memory Buffer to reduce readout artifacts

For data acquisition and camera control, the acclaimed Capture software is included as well as plug-ins to allow use with Maxim DL, Astroart, and CCDSoft.

System requirements: Pentium II PC with 64MB RAM, Windows 98/XP/Vista, CD-ROM drive and USB 2.0 port.

Designed for a wide range of image sensing applications, the Kodak KAF-8300 Image Sensor is a 22.5 mm diagonal (Four Thirds Format) high performance monochrome or color full frame CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor. Digital imaging can be conducted as well with the KAF-8300.

Each pixel contains blooming protection by means of a lateral overflow drain thereby preventing image corruption during high light level conditions. For the color version, each of the 5.4 µm square pixels are patterned with an RGB mosaic color filter with overlying microlenses for improved color response and reproduction. Several versions of monochrome devices are available with or without microlenses.
