Hello,
I currently use a Canon 70D with my 80mm refractor and have the chance to buy a used QHY8L cooled camera.
This is a 6 MP camera, while the Canon has 20.2 MP. Both sensors are quite big, which is good.

 

Question is: would the cooling benefit me to such a degree that the smaller amount of pixels of the QHY8L is cancelled out?
