Update from ZWO

I had asked Sam (ZWO) about adding a heated cover glass (like the QHY163M has) to future model releases of the ASI1600 and I had this in an email reply from him today:

"you are corrent that we'd better add a heat board
but the back focus of current 1600 is too short and won't allow it to add one heat board
we will add one in our next APS-C camera".

So there you go, confirmation from the source, ZWO is developing an APS-C camera and it will have a heated sensor coverglass. Glad I bought the 36mm filters.

No details on the APS-C camera specs yet.
