Is this Flea2 any good for planetary work?

Just spotted this on the bay:

I'm looking up the specs now, wondering if it might do the job for Lunar or planetary work?

Even if no-one has used one, can anyone give any pointers as to whether the chip size, well size, frame-rate etc. would make it a no-go?

I haven't read any rules regarding whether a particular chip size is ideal for planetary work but it appears someone is using the Flea2 for planetary imaging.

It's not really a good idea as the frames per second are significantly lower. Besides for another 50 or so dollars you can get the flea 3 with 120fps at max (reality though is around 60fps on really bright objects).

I would not bother myself.
