Atik One 6.0 Review
« on: 23:04:40, 02 March, 2015 »
Hi all...

Atik cameras very kindly let UKAI review one of their latest camera bundles - the Atik One 6.0, with Off-axis guider and GP guide camera!

The review can be see here - please feel free to comment on this thread as the review itself is locked.

We would like to thank Steve Chambers @ Atik for allowing us at the forum to put the camera through it's paces, despite the lousy weather (of course!) and my big "thanks" to Vince @ Atik for arranging the whole thing :clap: :clap: :clap:

Keep producing the great equipment, chaps :thumbup:

Phil

Nice review Phil.
Nice package this but not so suitable for Hyperstar use.
Btw, with iOptron CEM60-EC (including encoders) how much did you need guiding commands ?

Thanks... 
Yep - good point about hyperstar... but then again... ANY filterwheel in front of that setup is going to be photon robbing :laugh:

(as for the iOptron, it nudges it now & then.... tbh... don't take much notice.... the guidestar line is always so flat)

I had one of these before they made the oag and guide camera kit. I bought the oag but note that is will only really work with at the atik guide camera. I had a lodestar which I like and didn't want to spend another £300 on a replacement. My solution was to put a 5mm spacer between oag and camera, this should have been enough. I still needed another 2-3mm so with i took the helical focuser off, machined down the centre threaded column and screwed the top down. I then bought a Baader T2 - 1.25" with helical focuser and all works a treat now.
