I'm used to using unity gain (139/21) with my rasa and asi1600mm pro and h-alpha filter for emission nebula, but I'm assuming the 533 is going to need different settings.

Not sure but the time I get to actually use the camera I'll have many emission targets. So, might need to set my sights on maybe m31 / m33 areas for a test.

Since my skies are trash I'm guessing unity gain is going to be more like lucky imaging.

What'd be a good start for broadband? Thought I'd start the bidding at maybe gain 75 and offset 15? I'd probably be shoving an l-pro in the imaging train in the filter drawer.

The most important thing to know.  It doesn't matter much.  As long as you're "in the ballpark", this is a minor tweak.

 

As is subexposure.

 

Total imaging time is substantially more important than either.  If you want to effectively make the best improvement, just shoot more subs.
