Colin, I think that the 1600 has split amplification (and an on-chip DSP keeping watch?) - it does not behave much like a raw CCD.

ZWO/Panasonic? have already done the calibration (I guess controlled by on-chip registers) and you can dial up any allowable mixture of read noise, dynamic range etc. as per the graphs. And you can control the exposure - should be an interesting optimisation problem. The offset defaults to 21 ADU? in most software.
