Atik have released details of their new Atik 16200 Camera with large KAF-16200 sensor. 

Features include 6 μm pixels (suitable for use with a range of telescopes) a new sealed argon-purged CCD chamber, dual-stage Peltier cooler and a large heatsink for optimum cooling (-45°C typical and -50°C max!). 

The camera also features new bespoke electronics that deliver a read noise of just 9e- typical and a high-end blade shutter for consistent, reliable, performance.

Weight is only 1.3 kg, which is impressive for a camera in this class. 

Mono cameras will be available for shipping in December, colour cameras will arrive early 2017 smiley
