I have never imaged when I had frost problems. I usually image after dark except when imaging in the far south. I think you can order
the heater from SBIG and solder yourself, or send it to SBIG to have it done. If buying straight from SBIG they can possibly install
the heater before shipping. I have a AT field flattener, but have not imaged with it yet do to the hassle of having to use the ST8300M with
CFW5 to align my iOptronIEQ45 mount and focus with a different imaging train. My normal focus setup is to use a 2" extender and set my
Feather Touch to 7.75cm without the CFW5, and ~6.1cm with it depending on temperature of the AT102ED f/7 tube. John Laning

What do you want to know about the SBIG ST8300M? I have used it since April 2010, and
the CFW5 with LRGB Baeder filters since June. I use CCDSoftV5 for both imaging and processing. I have MaxImV5 ISP that I use less than PSElementsV2 for finishing.John Laning

Thanks Marc, glad to be here.
Just looking at your images and there's some real nice ones. I haven't been out all winter, just too cold, but I've been dying to take some shots so I just may have to suck it up :)

Hey Marc...MB said that you can kill the red/orange sky by calibrating the white balance. I found the setting and learned how to do on my camera but long of an exposure do I use? Quickk snap, or does it need to be as long as I intend to expose for?
