Good choice Barry. The extra cooling is a good thing. Most CCD evils are fixed with powerful cooling so whilst it may be clean at warmer temps there are benefits to powerful cooling still. Long term CCD damage fades with powerful cooling as well as thermal noise of course. I used to notice a better image from my STL11 on cold nights when I cranked it to -35 over the usual -20 to -25C. Images were a bit crisper and cleaner that showed.

Greg.
