Nikon Z6 has been on the market for 7 months now (launch November, 2018).  An earlier message received from you was asking me to go through Backyard Nikon.  I tried but I was told that they were waiting for Nikon to send them a Z6 camera and that they may receive it in 6 months...  Can you do something to unable the Z6 in The Sky X Pro without having to rely on a third party to manage the camera?  It's a long time to wait for don't you think...

Thank you for your prompt reply

Correct.  TheSkyX with the optional Camera Add On can control Nikon cameras through Backyard Nikon, only.

Not in the short term.  Unfortunately, if there's a six month backlog for this camera, even if SB supported Nikon cameras directly, SB would be in the same boat at Backyard Nikon is now (we'd be waiting for the new model, too).

Please consider contacting Nikon about their disappointingly long camera delivery lead times.

Thank you.

I received a note from Diffraction Limited Support team about the Nikon Z6 Software Development Kit and file formats availability for developers and they stated the following:  '' I just checked this morning. Nikon updated the file format info and control software just a few weeks ago (End of February, not sure when it was actually released).''

All I am asking is for you to check with Nikon and perhaps encourage third party to do the same.  I would like to urge you to do so but, as a consumer, my only power is to ask and wait...
