QHY9 Light leak

Hi guys, ive just finished the imaging run from last night and wanted to get started taking darks but I've noticed that there is severe light leak (to a point where every dark frame is useless). I've tried reducing it by "wrapping the camera with foam lining along the sides but still getting the issue. I've put my 365 cover as well as wrapping the camera in a black t-shirt. still, I'm getting light leaking in from the sun. Does anyone else have this problem with the QHY9? If so, what was your solution?


I've attached a screenshot of what the dark looks like.
