Lens heater on NIKON A1R/STORM again failing

Unfortunately, the TOKAI hit lens heater is broken again. We are in contact with the Japanese supplier but it may take some time for it to be repaired (it needs to be sent to Japan). We have imaged live cells without the heater overnight without any problems, yet the temperature at the lens spot will be several degrees below the set temperature. Contact CCI staff if you intent to install the hairdryer for additional heating.
