      Never used one but looking at it almost certainly good for planetary imaging. Depends what type of Solar imaging you want to do. Colour camera is not ideal for hydrogen alpha / narrow band imaging.

  2. Looking for information on a good camera to use for both solar images and deep space images...

      I suggest you start this as a new topic in the Beginners Imaging section or the Discussion Cameras section. Also throw in an idea of budget - I am assuming you mean a ccd type camera and not a DSLR one? From a question on the moon what scope is being used? Ask this as if over something like 600mm then on a 1/3" camera sensor you cannot get the whole face of the sun on the chip. OK if you want to image prominances not good if you want to show sunspots on the whole surface.
