Hello

In order to do all the testing on the Atik 383L, I removed the cam from the telescope, and installed a new ZWO 1600 pro in place.

I will come back when I have info available.

Regards
Geert

Hello
I finally had the time to disassemble de Atik 383L and found the cause of noise:


In between the CCD and the Peltier for cooling there is a piece of aluminun coated with some thermal paste on both sides.
I cleaned this and added new heat conducting paste and voila.. cam working ok again.


Hope this is usefull for anybody who may experiment the same issue.


Regards
Geert
