Mwa ha ha haa!

Ps. Not only cheaper than an STL11000, but also a fair bit more sensitive too, and lower noise levels.. the only thing you're sacrificing is the expansive field of view the 35mm sensor in the STL11000 provides.

Yep, to do super deep work, the ST10 can be a real pain unless you're shooting narrowband with very very tight (3nm) filters.. moderate star blooms can be processed out, obviously you'll never recover the data that was underneath the star bloom.. The ST8300 would make a good replacement for the 350D, even just for the convenience of having regulated cooling, so you can have a dark library and not have to waste time doing darks during imaging nights..

Chewing my nails off waiting for the new SBIG...
