For a typical 3-4 hour session of imaging time (28,000 or so images?), you're looking at the better part of a day to fully integrate and stack all of the resulting data, even on an 8 or 12 thread system.
for anyone considering this camera, the above analysis is wrong by a factor of 10x. The processing will be onerous, but not this bad.
