Atik Infinity Colour Camera versus eVscope - Photo Comparison

Introduction | Photos, Sorted Alphabetically by Deep Sky Object | Links

On this page, I contrast photos of the same DSO that I took with my Atik Infinity Colour* camera and various telescopes and with my eVscope. Usually, these photos are post-processed, because on the originals there is often little to see (particularly, on those taken with the Atik Infinity).

*) Usually, I would write "Color", because I try to use American English, but Atik is a company located in the UK, and therefore it's "Colour"...

 

Introduction

My Atik Infinity Colour camera and my eVscope have sensors with a similar number of pixels, but after that the similarities almost end. "Almost", because both systems produce photos by quickly superimposing many briefly exposed images (stacking). However, the eVscope offers an "all-in-one" solution, whereas with the Atik Infinity you have to assemble the components yourself. With telescope, GoTo mount, Celestron StarSense module, and laptop, you then have about the same as the eVscope offers. Without the StarSense module, you have to use the GoTo control to perform the alignment.
