Description

This is first light for my new (to me) QSI6120. Went for something challenging so I could push the camera to see what it could do. Reported read noise and dark profile on this chip came through - seriously impressive performance. I tried not to push the dust too far but couldn't help bringing out some mottling in the process. I'm pleased with the dustiness given a capture from Bortle 5 skies. Thanks for looking.
