I have written a short guide to starting up with this camera containing my insights from over a years use. I have attached it as a text file. All I can say is this workflow works for me and also give solutions to common problems I have encountered. My apologies, all the calibration and processing tips are using Pixinsight. I have put links to useful tutorials and on line resources.
It is an excellent value camera but sometimes can cause frustration in new users. Hence the guide. This is not an ultimate guide so contribute on this thread if you have found problems but have found interesting workarounds.
