Last night on " Nightskiesnetwork.com " with Chris A. and a group of us we enjoyed the new software in action.
The new software took this great camera to the next level of pleasure. "Live Imaging" being done during the broadcast was
amazing...It just worked  as it should and gave the tools to use the camera more expanse of control..
Thank you all at Atik for another great product,the device and its new software is Cutting edge!
Thank you for making your customers  happy!

A product I would like to see is the Infinity like software feature(real time stacking and viewing) in a medium or large format camera.  I would really like to be able to the using full 48mm field with out the bulk of the a focal reducer.  I would not even mind the a bin down for going fast.  It would add huge amount of flexibility to the larger format cameras and maybe drive more sales of these.

Been playing around with the new software using recorded sessions.  Love the new Histogram control.  Exactly what i was hoping for.  Great job Atik!!

You might have seen in other threads we're thinking about adding a native video record feature, so you could save a .mp4/.avi/similar directly in the software, and without needing an internet connection.

Is that something many of you would be interested in?

Will be cool that we can record video frames with Infinity.

Make the exposition time more short, please!

Thanks for the feedback, elpajare, it's really useful.

Though I'm afraid I don't think we can go any shorter than 0.001s for the exposure time!

I really like the Infinity SW and would really like to use it with other Atik cameras, the Atik 460 for example.

The definive tool would be the LIVE Curves option.

If it was possible, this software would be the best for EAA in my opinion.

I am really, really liking the Infinity SW with the Atik 460ex using the new Beta release.  Good job Atik!

I would like the ability to select the type of files to save when the button is pressed that now auto saves FIT files.  Perhaps I want to save JPEGs or TIFFS (8 or 16 bits) as I watch a comet move among the stars.  And it would be nice to save some information in the file name such as Image # and exposure time as well as a custom base name.  And perhaps save once every X images to allow time for something to show movement.  If a series of JPEG can be saved, an AVI can easily be made from the JPEGs.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm glad you're enjoying the new software. Anyways, the software currently only auto saves in FITS files as these files contain the additional information needed to replay through the data and this wouldn't be possible with the other files types. However, adding an option to also save in other file types is an interesting idea. I'll add it to the list.
