Steve Chambers and Rui Tripa launched the business following their own frustrating search for astronomical imaging equipment. The type of camera they wanted was simply not available in a realistic price range – so they set out to design it themselves.
From small beginnings, their company has grown rapidly. Atik is based in the city of Norwich, in England, where our cameras are designed and developed. Most of the equipment is made in our dedicated factory in Lisbon, Portugal.
