Best planetary camera

Hi all,

I know I may be opening a can of worms by asking this but am very unsure on what to get so want a few opinions. I have just purchased an 9.25" celestron adv xlt sct. I was wondering on what people opinions were on the best camera would be for planetary imaging. I don't mind saving for good one if its worth it, usb 2 or 3. Just something that gives great images.thanks.

although I dont have one, the ZWO ASI120 MM or MC are supposed to be great cameras at quite a reasonable price.

Yep, got the MC ( Colour ) version and quite happy with it. Firecapture comes with it and gives good control and a lot of information. Best value for $$ deal to start with and it can do DSO once you cool it down a bit.
