    Is a SBIG camera based on the IMX455 sensor likely to be available any time soon? My STL-11000M is getting long in the tooth, and I want to upgrade my 24x36mm sensor-sized camera.

    May I know it form factor?
    ….are it outline dimensions based on a current model?

    We would wonder a new camera frame series fitting with the cut out space limitation required by RASA/Hyperstar lens telescopes.
