Continued discussion on taking and analysis of dark frames.

Due to the dome not being cold enough during the day, it is difficult to cool the camera down to -15 or -20 celcius. Therefore, the remaining readings will be taken further into winter, when the dome is colder.

Objectives for analysis of dark frames:

- Plot a histogram of the -5°C, 60 second frame and compute the mean, median and standard deviation.
- Plot the column mean and consider the standard deviation for all columns.
- Plot the standard deviation as the square root of the mean and check to see if it's a Poisson Distribution.

We should also consider what the faintest star we could detect would be, looking at the point spread function of our telescope.
