The Atik 16200 boasts an APS-H size sensor with a 35mm diagonal in a new case design. The 6µm pixel sensor makes it suitable for a large range of telescopes. The large format size of the camera makes it ideal for astrophotographers looking to capture widefield views of the night sky and zoom in on deep sky regions of interest.

16.2 Megapixel camera for Large Format, cooled CCD Astrophotography

It’s also an excellent match for longer focal lengths, capturing intricate details on even the smallest and faintest of objects. Whatever your astrophotography style, the large size of the images give you the freedom and flexibility to zoom in and take a closer look at regions of interest with the level of detail you'd expect from your main target.

Using Filters

The large size of the sensor is a match for 2" filters, and is perfectly complemented by the new EFW3 7-position 2" filter wheel. Attaching the EFW3 straight to the front of the camera gives a backfocus of 41.5mm. You can also remove the front plate of the camera and attach the wheel directly. This brings the backfocus down to just 34.5mm.

The 16200 can also be used with the 2" model of the EFW2 when used with an ATK 0081 M54 adaptor to couple the camera to the wheel. It's also fully compatible with Atik Air, making it easy to add wifi and ethernet connectivity to your set up.

Housing the CCD in a sealed, argon-purged chamber creates a dry, condensation free environment. We've also introduced a dual-stage peltier and powerful new heatsink for optimum cooling performance. At -45°C typical and a huge -50°C maximum, it’s our best delta yet. All this means you can take stunning low noise images, even when the temperature's rising outside.

Atik's high-quality, custom electronics power the sensor to give a read noise of just 9e-. There's also a new blade shutter which provides consistent and reliable performance over the camera's lifespan.

All this is housed inside a brand new case design that gives you optimum performance with minimum fuss. This makes the Atik 16200 the perfect camera for astrophotographers who want large format images, without the large format price tag.

A note on CCD Grades

The Atik 16200 comes with a class II sensor fitted as standard. We feel that the premium prices placed on class 1 sensors just aren’t justifiable when using the camera for astrophotography. If you do require a camera with a class 1 sensor, please get in touch with your Atik dealer.

Zygo Interferometer Testing For ED Refractor Telescopes!

We are extremely pleased to announce our Zygo Interferometer is now installed and ready for use! Our experienced staff can test refractor lenses up to 120mm aperture and provide a comprehensive 2 page report showing the optical quality and Strehl ratio, plus much more information. We are using the very latest Zygo MX software to provide a more detailed report compared to other standard reports.

 

The interferometer is essentially a measuring instrument. Within the interferometer is a calibrated laser that is pointed through the optical test surface, then onto a high quality reference sphere, then back through the test subject then to an internal camera which gives us the measurement on the screen. From this, we can adjust the position of the test optic and the reference sphere to obtain a perfectly calibrated system. The more central the laser to the test optic and then on return, the better and more accurate reading and measurement we can take. This takes a lot of adjustment to get the best results from the optical surface. Once the measurement has been taken, we are provided with a series of results that show the optical quality of the surface plus other information. Continue reading for an explanation of the individual values and you can also see a test report that was done on one of our RVO Horizon 60 OTAs. 

We are offering certain telescopes with a Zygo test at an extra cost. Mainly ED doublets and triplets. All available telescopes with a Zygo test report are listed here. Just select Zygo Test Report from the drop down box at the top of the listing and we will test the optics in house and provide a full 2 page report with your scope. This will show you the optical quality of your telescope optics. We can also offer this service on your refractor telescope. Please get in touch for more details about this. 

At Rother Valley Optics, one thing we pride ourselves on is customer service and quality of our equipment. When we test your telescope, we will ensure that it is of the highest quality otherwise, we will reject the scope under our strict quality control and test another model for your peace of mind. One of the main values to look at when testing a refractor is the Strehl ratio. The higher this number, the higher quality lens you have. At Rother Valley Optics, we will guarantee the highest possible Strehl ratio for your telescope.  We will aim to provide 0.95 Strehl or higher on Takahashi, RVO Horizon, William Optics and many more! Generally, the higher the Strehl ratio, the lower the Astigmatism and Coma meaning a better image quality from your instrument. 

Other measurements such as the PV and RMS are important too. With these measurements, the lower the number the better as it shows less curvature on the lens. The flatter an optical lens, the better it will perform. The PV rating (Peak To Valley) is a measurement from the highest point (Peak) to the lowest point (Valley). From this we get the RMS (Root, Mean, Square). This is a similar figure to the PV and measured exactly the same way. The RMS is basically an average height difference from the PV so again, the lower the better. As you can see form the example below, we measured an RMS of just 0.027 wave which is a very good value.

We also measure the Power with our systems which is essentially the error from the reference sphere to the test optic. The reference sphere we use on our system is a very high quality sphere so the closer to zero the Power, the less error between the 2 elements thus ensuring a higher quality optical surface. 

You will also see some more values such as Astigmatism and Coma. Again, these are measured by the interferometer when we take measurements of the optical surface after adjustment. These are values which ideally would be at 0 but as our test optics are all curved lenses, there will always be astigmatism and coma present. The lower the number, the less of these aberations you will effectively see but with most refractors, you can buy field flatteners which will compensate for the coma anyway. The astigmatisms value is explaining the error between the symmetrical curvature of the lens. Basically, no lens will be perfectly symmetrical, the lower the astigmatism, the more symmetrical the lens surface is. 

Once the Zygo test report has been completed, the optical alignment is thoroughly tested and tuned to ensure they are spot on before they leave us. 

All available telescopes are on the website at the link below and ones we've tested already that are available straight away are also listed.

Here is an example of the test what we provide. This was a test on one of our Horizon 60 ED OTA's.
