I've got the ASI1600 and within reason, it's good, but microlensing is very annoying, and you get no benefit from hardware binning.

If it does actually do real hardware binning, at say 2x2, you would get an effective pixel size of 7.52um. That would be nice to have on some larger scopes, right? Or do I misunderstand things here?
