This was a first test of a new ASI1600MC cooled one-shot color camera attached to an SS-one ZWO Capture controller (Raspberry Pi-based). Conditions were very windy and seeing was very poor 4-5 arcsec. But the new camera and imaging controller checked out fine. The camera was running at -10°C. Dark frames were subtracted in post-processing, but no flat frames were used -- obviously I need to incorporate that into my processing flow.
