Can I use astronomical camera for digital microscopy?

I'm thinking of getting myself a cheap(ish) microscope, and have a much neglected imaging source dbk 21au618.as camera laying around. Would it be possible to use this camera with a microscope? I haven't really used this camera much and don't know a great deal about it. Are they optimized for low light applications and susceptible to damage if used in higher light applications? Other than getting bad video results, do I have anything to lose from trying?

Thanks!

It will work fine. Just get a C mount to microscope adapter.
