Sony NEX5 ?? Any use for astrophotography

Does this camera have any potential for astronomical work , I think it's 14mp and goes up to 12800 iso , though tests show that this value is more like 16000. I imagine if the noise level is reasonable these specs look promising?

Darn right about that, Dave. Alex has taken some amazing pics with that little Nex5 of his. Great camera on a big and fast dob and he gets shots some have paid 5-10 times as much for in equipment to just get half as good.
