The R-D12 is giving way to the R-D16 and should be available in about 1 week on the website.

Can you provide any details on it? I was about to order the D-12 when I saw the note about the new D-16 but I know nothing about it.

We have updated Rotator D12 based on suggestions and requests from customers and forum members. The new Rotator D16 is the same as Rotator D 12 except that it has 4 extended detent options by using dual detent plungers.

The 16 different degree stop increments (with equivalent number of stops around) include:

extended by using dual detent plungers
* 3.75 (96 stops)
* 5 (72 stops)
* 6 (60 stops)
* 18 (20 stops)

normal by using one detent plunger
* 7.5 (48 stops)
* 10 (36 stops)
* 12 (30 stops)
* 15 (24 stops)
* 20 (18 stops)
* 24 (15 stops)
* 30 (12 stops)
* 36 (10 stops)
* 45 (8 stops)
* 60 (6 stops)
* 90 (4 stops)
* 120 (3 stops)

Retail price for Rotator D16 is $199.95.

Nick, the update would be helpful for using my 135mm at 5* (72 stops). Will there be an upgrade path from the D12? Thanks, Scott

Thanks Nick. The D-16 seems like the one for me. Can't wait to see it! So arrival on the website is sometime this January?

sorry, there is no upgrade path. You can contact your dealer to see what they can do for you.
