Yep.  Atik is in Perseus, and not that bright.

Here's an image of Jupiter that was taken tonight through my Coulter 13.1" blue tube Odyssey, with an ASI120MC camera.  I tried using a 2x Barlow, but the Odyssey movement isn't smooth enough to keep Jupiter on the screen.  I have a new Antares secondary mirror on the way for it.  It will be interesting to see how much that will help.
