CCTV cameras for guiding ?

My question is, could this camera be used for guiding, considering it's interface (LAN)?

Bojan, how high is the read noise? Does the camera support long exposures (few seconds)?

PHD2 will stack shorter exposures if the camera does not support longer exposures but stacking short exposures also stacks the noise.
When I did a long exposure mod on my good old SPC900NC the number of stars increased dramatically after the mod.

Not sure yet..
I bought this camera for other project (GMN - recording meteorites), it was recommended by GMN people exactly because of low noise and high sensitivity.

Being quite cheap, it occurred to me it could be useful other things as well.
So far I did not have time to play with it, I will tryt to it over holidays..
