Frost seems reasonable running at < 0C in air but unless light is shinning on
CCD how can an obstruction on it's surface cause an image defect? It is
in the center. Could the ice be keeping the CCD warmer where covered? Frost
be easy to prove/disprove, tempurature cycle the CCD and see if the "spots"
Do cosmic rays branch and cause Y shapped image defects?

Tom, As I understand it your -21000 pixel values are only 11000 counts above
correct? Doesn't your scale go from about -32000 to +32000? I want to make
certain I understand this.
