I think if you truly want to do "video astronomy" you need to get a CCD video camera which integrates exposures up to about 2.56 sec like the G star ex or 10sec like the Samsung 4000. These are very sensitive cameras and gare the nearest thing your get to live view of deep sky objects. The g star is a mono camera and the Samsung colour . If you have the money Atik have recently released a video camera for the purpose you described. I'd imagine it would be very good. I spent several years using the G star and Samsung to capture photos and know they are capable of doing what you want. The ZWO cameras are excellent but are really solar system cameras and need much longer exposures to give similar results.
