Are these flats/darks OK...?

Recommended Posts

Just tried some calibration frames with my under-used SX694.  The master dark appear to show a dead column and faint diagonal banding.  The flats show slightly uneven illumination at the top edge, though I think this might be a shadow of the OAG.




Do these seem "normal" or workable for imaging purposes?  


I must admit I am rather lazy and don't normally use darks or flats, preferring to use a hot pixel filter and a clean optical path instead (though I do have to use flats with RGB - I can usually get away without them in narrowband for some reason).


Any advice or comment welcome...
