A quick DSS settings summary anywhere?

I'm just wondering if anyone can provide the current 'best practice' settings for combining raw files in DSS, in preparation for processing in startools.

I shoot a mirrorless/mini-DSLR that creates 24mpix raws. I shoot bias, dark and flat files.

I often go for Kappa-Sigma stacking for the lights and 'median' stacking for the darks/flats/bias. I'm moving towards trying longer exposures (6mins up to 10 mins) so will end up with fewer subs overall and so will switch to average or median stacking for those. I'm more used to shooting many more shorter subs (2 to 4 mins usually)

How much do I need to worry about the Blackpoint and 'per channel calibration' type options for the light files?
