The Atik Horizon II is the follow up to the first ever CMOS Camera. It houses a 16MP sensor with exceptionally low read noise and incredibly fast read speeds. With the signature Atik blend of form and function, the Atik Horizon II provides a sensitive, high megapixel sensor at a competitive price point. This makes it a great option if you're looking to upgrade from DSLR, or have system that would benefit from shorter exposure times.
New Horizon II Modes
- PowerSave Mode - Allows for the highest quality images to be taken.
- Fast Mode - Takes advantage of the on board DDR memory to return a constant stream of images. Fast mode increases the frame rate of the Horizon II to 8FPS. This can increase to 100FPS through the use of subframing, and reaching 300FPS when used with Dusk.
With extensive experience in both hardware and software design, the Atik Horizon II continues its development in the world of deep-sky optimised CMOS cameras.
Mechanically, the Horizon II is based on our estblished 4-Series cameras, known for their power and adaptability. With a cyclindrical case measuring 74mm in diameter and 130mm in length, it's compatible with HyperStar systems from 8". The slight size increase on the 4-Series is to house a huge cooling delta of -40°C below ambient. This keeps thermal noise under control, wherever in the world you image from.
