Reusing Dark Frames

Hi All

A question on dark frames:

At present, I collect my dark frames at the end of each night out, I usually managed to get 12 darks (an hours worth of 5min subs) and usually find that I can use about 10 as the first two are often out due to temp.

My question, since I capture 5 min subs at iso 800 almost every time and I now have quite a few that are all around the same temp, can I reuse darks from other nights out as long as I can get the temp to match?

Is there anything I need to know in regards to building a darks library.

The aim is less time collecting darks and more time collecting photons.
