Imaging camera


Recommended Posts

I need some help regarding upgrading from a DSLR to CCD camera.

Max £600 and a new mono camera.

I've been looking at these so far:

Atik Titan Mono Dual Purpose CCD Camera

ZWO ASI 290MM USB 3.0 Mono Camera

Altair Hypercam 178M USB3.0 Mono

Any more suggestions?

With a budget of 600 notes I would go for a second hand Atik 314. 

One of the best cameras ever made for the money.

I agree with Graham if yoou want ccd and ^00 is a firm budget I think you will want to look at used kit.


The ones you have highlighted are really guide cams - good ones but still small chips and guide cams.


There are some interesting CMOS coming to market but are more thamn your budget.
