How to perform darks on a ZWO 6200 with OAG LOL

We have been struggling to get darks on this camera due to light leakage and the fact that ZWO cameras do not have a shutter, so in the end have resulted to extreme blackout techniques as we have found out online that the new ZWO M68 OAG is prone to light leak :(


Black refuse sack to the rescue and they are now done. Sorry it has taken so long to get the new darks done but i hope this explains a little as to why... :)

Wow! That took awhile.

The Darks for the piers Steve has said above are all present and accounted for now.

Just a note about the Pier 6 Darks

Please check the FIT's header of the files you recieve to ensure you use the correct DARK frames as there are two sets available.

-10° DARKS
-5° DARKS

Going forward newer orders will all be -5°
