Just got my flats panel in from Amazon and did a test run based on what I read on Astrobackyard. 

 

The panel has a very slight blue tint to it, does this matter for flats? 

 

Exposure was 0.008 seconds at 90 gain. I got the histogram to land right in the middle with a 0.008s exposure with the ASI071MC.

 

Note the telescope wasn't focused perfectly for a DSO, so dust specs dont show up, this was just a test during the daytime to make sure I get the AstroPhotoTools settings right before a real run at night after imaging a DSO.
