The black and white camera is optimal for imaging the Moon and when used with filter wheels produces the highest quality planetary images, but then you have the cost and hassle of the filter wheel and more complex post-processing.

The colour camera is less suited to the Moon but on the planets gives you the convenience of one shot imaging with no filter wheel needed.

There's a lot to be said for starting off with the much cheaper SPC900NC and seeing if you enjoy webcam imaging, its got a pretty steep learning curve and you'll still be able to produce some excellent images with it.
