Default Nikon E-mail tech support?

Does anyone know how long it usually takes to get an answer back from Nikon? Their site said three (3) days and it has been now about a week. Did I ask to intelligent a question?

The following is the gist of my info needed:

I need to know the exact size (in microns) of the pixels in my CoolPix 5400 camera. This is important when you are doing astrophotography so you can match the F ratio of the telescope to the pixel size.

I also would like to know if the camera uses binning to produce lower resolutions than when you use the 5 Mp setting. In other words, do you use the "lost" pixels (with decreased size say of 1025x768) to attach electronically together and make a bigger pixel size and thus more sensitive? If so I need to know the ratio for each camera resolution.

When I use the "Noise Reduction" setting does it actually do a dark subtract to minimize the effects of dark current in the CCD detector?

Any ideas and comments would be appreciated ~<:-)
