Imaging Quality and Target Selection Tool
#10
One thing about my suggestions, is that I believe that it really matters if the quality is B or C. I would not personally image a target below an IQ of B. In fact, usually I only go for A. This will make for the most consistently good images, especially if you are stacking over more than one night. At an IQ of C the SNR will be 70% of what you would get at A, or to look at it another way, it would take much longer to reach a given SNR at C than at A. So this is why A or B are recommended.

That said, if you want to include objects that are available at IQ = C, then set it to C. No, you won't get a different start and duration time, but remember, we are only trying to select target objects. As you said, all the information is right there.
Clear skies,
