This is from my TEC160FL and field flattener. This is 20x10 mins on a QSI683WSG8.

Nice work.  I don't think I've seen this target before.  And I'm sure I can't even imagine the challenges you face imaging from Alaska!

I run it at -25C which keeps the cooler at about 35%-45% power

-25°F is the coldest I have ever experienced while up at Chena Hot Springs.

 

What do you set the camera cooler to when it gets down to -40° ??  grin.gif

Maybe I should be running colder eh? I wonder what a good percentage of cooler power is to shoot for.
