After further research it appears the ZWO ASI294MC-C may have some serious issues.
If anyone is considering the 294 it would be a good idea to read the CN test thread and the ZWO forum questions and their responses related to this model. Simply put, it seems to have artifacts that cannot be calibrated out, even with 60s subs. Also the sensor chip, due to the way it mounts, cannot be cooled across the back as effectively as as a Panasonic chip in the 1600. The sensor can be centre cooled but not to the edges, thus you get uneven temperatures and it will not cool as deep as other ASI cooled cameras.

This might be one to hold off on until these issues have been addressed.
