Atik 383L+ Mono CCD ** SOLD **

Recommended Posts

Again, it is with much regret that I'm in the position of having to sell another piece of my imaging gear. This time its the Atik 383L+ mono CCD camera, which has served me flawlessly for the past few years.

Anyone who has seen the images Ive taken with this camera can be in no doubt as to its capability - and its happy on focal lengths from 135mm, all the way up to 1000mm. Additionally, it comes with the Artemis capture suite - which is about as simple and intuitive as it gets when it comes to "set up and go" imaging.... in fact, its so easy to use even a 5 year old can operate it (and did). No silly cable types required, just a USB cable and standard centre positive power lead (both supplied).

There are three motes close to the sensor, but they always calibrate out perfectly. And there is a minor mark on the cover glass, but that is clear of the sensor - and never appears in either the Light or Flat frames (so its not an issue). Given the cost of servicing which is about £50, I will knock that off the initial cost. The bonus being that all Atik servicing is UK based, so you're not shipping it to the other side of the planet. But, as it stands its all ready to rock anyway if you use calibration frames (which you should do regardless!).

Example images are as follows:

So, what is the cost of greatness?

£860 (includes £50 discount)

UK Sale Only

Payment method(s): Cash, bank transfer or Paypal (buyer pays fees).

Delivery: Either collection or courier (buyer pays delivery costs)

As usual, the price is the price, no discounts or haggling please - its cheap enough as it is already ;) And if you're sitting on the fence considering whether you should be going with CMOS or CCD.... the CCD is the clear winner - hands down, no contest.

Yes, this was brought from new. Master flat is as follows (from a 135mm f2 Samyang):

Here is a dark, not that you need them since 99% of the time using the proper stacking routine sorts out the hot pixels:

Thats ok mate ;)

Thats why it always pays to get in there quick when stuff like this comes up :D

As for me, all is not lost on the imaging front - FLO (bless them) have let me hang on to the test ASI178 Cool for a bit longer, so Im hoping I can champion that camera.
