ASI290MC (color)

 

Diagonal 6.46 mm (Type 1/2.8) Square Pixel Array Color CMOS Image Sensor

Back-Illuminated CMOS image Sensors with Improved Visible Light and Near Infrared Sensitivity that Support 1080p

Sony has developed the approx. 2.13M effective pixel back-illuminated CMOS image sensors IMX290LQR and IMX291LQR with improved sensitivity in the visible-light and near infrared light regions for industrial applications.
A new 2.9 µm-square unit pixel has been developed that combines a back-illuminated structure with technology for improving near infrared sensitivity to further enhance picture quality at low illumination while at the same time realizing Full HD cameras for industrial applications. This realizes two or more times the sensitivity in the visible-light region and three or more times the sensitivity in the near infrared light region than that of the existing Sony product (IMX236LQJ).

Astrophotography Performance

ASI290MC offers very good performance for astrophotography. Low read noise, high dynamic range, QE peak about 80%, AR protective window and much more.

 

USB 3.0 Port & ST4 Port

USB 3.0 Port: can provide 5Gb bandwidth to let ASI290 run at 82.2fps (12bit, normal mode) or 170 fps (10bit, high speed mode)  at full resolution(2.1Mega).

ST4 Port: can be used connect with auto guide port of mount, for guiding.

Drivers and Softwares:

Our website has newest camera drivers and many DSO and Planetary capture softwares. Please make sure the newest driver and software has been installed before you start shooting:

Camera Atik Horizon Colour cooled

The Atik Horizon is the first Atik CMOS Camera. It houses a 16MP sensor with exceptionally low read noise and incredibly fast read speeds. With our signature Atik blend of form and function, the Atik Horizon 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.


    16MP 4/3" CMOS sensor

    256mb DDR3 Image Buffer

    ~1e- Read Noise

    Cooling ΔT=>-40°C

    USB 3.0


With extensive experience in both hardware and software design, the Atik Horizon turns our expertise to the world of deep-sky optimised CMOS cameras. Already known for our low-noise electronics, the Horizon has our lowest read noise yet - just ~1e- at high gain settings. This is our first camera to offer adjustable gain, and for more information about how this works, see our gain settings video. The 3.8µm pixel size is an excellent match for shorter focal lengths and camera lenses; great news if you're looking for a wide field of view.

Mechanically, the Horizon 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.
Advanced Hardware Deserves Advanced Software

The Atik Horizon is natively compatible with our Infinity live stacking software to give you incredible views of the night sky in a near real-time environment. Not only is this great for video astronomers and public outreach, it also makes getting into astrophotography a breeze. Our on-the-fly image processing gets you up and running quickly, minimising the learning curve many people experience. However, our advanced functions ensure you are always in control as you steer your way through the night sky.


    Live continuous stacking

    Flexible histogram control, including auto-stretch functions

    Live YouTube broadcast integration

    Interactive session replay

    Focus assist and monitoring tools

    Save to FITs, PNG, JPG and TIFF formats


The Horizon is also fully compatible with our renowned Artemis Capture imaging software that gives you full control over your imaging. We also supply a full ASCOM driver so you're free to use it with your preferred astroimaging software.
Amp Glow Control

From the outset, the Horizon has benefited from a built-in 256mb DDR3 image buffer to remove amp glow and other artifacts caused by data transfer over USB2, all while preventing issues with dropped frames. This makes for a seamless and fast imaging experience, whether you're taking advantage of the flexibility and low cable weight of USB2, or the fast speeds of USB3.

Our experience of working with demanding scientific applications has given us an advanced understanding of sealing techniques. This understanding allows us to create a condensation free environment, and means your desiccant lasts much longer between recharges. We're using the same quartz fused cover glass as our Atik 383L+ camera to prevent condensation forming on the outside of the glass when the camera's cooled. This added level of performance and reliability means you can spend less time maintaining your equipment, and more time imaging with it.
