Please keep in mind, this is a customer test and I am not affiliated with ZWO.
As last night was clear, so I went outreach to my site and shot 3 targets, which I will post both single fit and all the calibration fits in this thread.
I have attached a few photos and calibration frames below.
And will be happy to answer any questions or specific requests.
^ Unpacking, this is a test model, so it only includes a single camera, I will assemble it with my ASI071 system,since the back intercept and screws are all the same as most ZWO cameras.
On the mountains last night. Using ASI 290mini as a guider scope, and the OTA is SkyWatcher 8" F4 newt, mount is EQ6-R.
The site is in my sig, so you can measure the following pics.
To shot with this camera is simply as shot with ASI071MC, and with the single square CMOS, you don't need to worry the OAG's prism blocking the CMOS, and you can turn any angle you like to make the framing.
After home test, I upgraded the latest ASCOM driver to 22.214.171.124 since older version cannot recognize this new product. Using simple unity gain at 100 gain, 70 offset, the USB speed simply runs at 40.
Download speed for SGP is 3s at bin 1*1 and 1s at bin 2*2, for NINA is nearly 1s for both bin 1 and 2. (Both with ASCOM drivers, since SGP don't have latest Native Driver so no test at the moment)
Cooling from home: Room temp 19C / 70% hum. and cooled to -15C and stabilized at 82%, on the mountain air temp 8C / 95% hum. cooled to -15C and stabilized at 50%.
Whole night seeing is about 0.7~0.8.
M45 single pic. 300s 100gain 70offset, PI simple stretch & color calibration. Debayered but not calibrated.
M42 single pic. 60s 100gain 70offset, PI simple stretch & color calibration. Debayered but not calibrated.
IC434 Hoursehead single pic. 300s 100gain 70offset, PI simple stretch & color calibration + ABE. Debayered but not calibrated.
The measurement result on Unity Gain 100 gain 70 offset 40 USB.

Stacked or master file with simple PI workflow, All Sigma Clipping is 2.5 high, 4.0 low.
Currently only with last night's Flats and Biases, will do darks tonight since I just got this one 2 days ago. And will post raw fits for my last night's target on my Astrobin.
