Calibration Frames for 130GTX


Nick Iversen
 

I have been taking long exposure dark frames with my 130GTX covered at each end to prevent light leakage. But I just realised that I haven't been covering the gap between the tube and the dew cap. That gap is almost airtight. It doesn't leak light does it? I will cover it from now on however.

Speaking of calibration I have seen it said that for flats you don't have to cool the camera because exposure is too short. That surely can't be right for CMOS can it? I always cool my camera for flats.
