Thanks Herra!

Been all over your website (as I am pondering a cold mod to my D5100 too), might fire a few questions about that into your general direction ;).

We're off to our 'dark spot' for a long weekend shooting in two weeks, at least 2 D5100 and maybe a D7000 will be testing the new firmware ;)
What I'm still wondering about is if the star eater patch is unneeded with dark current enabled. As we are getting raw sensor information, my guess is that star eater patch is doing nothing (as no actions are performed on the raw data?)
Could anyone confirm this?

For astro imaging, lossless compression and dark current would then be the only two patches needed?

The Crescent Nebula (also known as NGC 6888) is an emission nebula in the constellation Cygnus, about 5000 light-years away.
