One very nice feature I'm using on my Atik 4000 mono is the "Optical window heater" it saves you lots of problem with frost!

Will this feature be present on the future KAF 16200?
Clear skies!

At this point, there isn't an optical window heater on the 16200 but only because so far we haven't found a need for one - it's quite a different design to the 4000 and gets round the problem in other ways. However, if there do appear to be any problems with frost during our continued testing, I'm sure it's something we'll look at adding in - but so far, so good  :)

Also, rpineau, I will mention compatibility with the X2 plugin for TheSkyX Pro to our software guys and see if we can test that out a bit further down the line!

Thanks,
Jo

Hello,

If the form factor changes, It means there is a new filter wheel in starting block or EFW2 will be fine ? If new one, 7 positions for 2" filters ?

Regards,
Miguel

Hello Jo,

I've been waiting for the release of this camera for some time, I've seen you have said it could be December.

The problem for most of us here in the UK is the falling pound we've seen alternative products increasing in price while we wait, with this in mind I'm just wondering if you can give me & others waiting any idea of the price for UK customers?

Hi Peter,

Yes, we're still working on that time frame so we're ironing out a few final details and working out the final costings, then we should have a clear picture in the coming weeks- as soon as we do I'll let you know.

I appreciate the wait's frustrating, particularly with the volatile financial market at the moment, and I admire how patient you've all been - I think it'll be worth it ;)

And Miguel - I'm sorry I missed your post - the EFW2 will be compatible, and we're looking to get a 7 position 2" wheel in the design blocks when we can.

I hope that helps - I'll get you more concrete information as soon as I have it myself!

Jo

A little more information for you guys  ;)

http://www.atik-cameras.com/product/atik-16200-coming-soon/

And because I know the next question is going to be about the price - our dealers decide their final pricing, but here's what First Light Optics have gone for:

And if that's not enough, here's a picture from it too:

Thanks a lot Jo.
I assume the front plate thread is a standard T-Thread ?

Thanks, Rodolphe

The camera shares the low read noise digitisation circuits of our 3 and 4 series cameras.  Download time is approx 16 seconds.
Best

Thanks.
All great news.
So same M54 as the Atik 11000 (so I can get the adapter made from Preciseparts.com using the Atik 11000 as the reference as they don't have the 16200 yet :) ).
Will you update the PDF with all the camera specs ( http://3ainmfntxe31vi9qd1pxgpd1.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/atik-specification-tables-Sept-16.pdf ) ?

Now we just need to wait for it to ship :D
