I would have thought so yes, There are HEAPS of stunning shots from the KAI-11002M sensor + FSQ, and I'd always thought that at 500mm F/L with the 9um pixels in the 11002M, the image would have suffered due to it being under sampled. the 16000M has similar sensor area, but with smaller 7.4um pixels.. much better for wide field refractors..
After having a closer look and comparing to a few other images I've seen, I now see that faint extended nebulosity that causes the deceptive effect of this image
