I think it's the opposite, actually. I image in fairly dark skies with a reasonably low read noise Sony sensor, and I would have to be doing insanely long exposures with 3nm filters to not be read noise limited. There's no point in high light pollution scenarios because you swiftly get past the "read noise limited" point, and once you have, it's just about total integration time.

In other news, looks like the Trius is now sold, so I'll hopefully have a 1600 on the way soon.
