What is best planet and solar camera at any price

I have want to get good camera for planet and solar and lunar usage.

Is there big chip camera for good solar and lunar use that has fast ROI for planet use also?

Price is not an issue much, just want best camera. Would like better than 8 bit, do not want imaging source.

Which is good model to look at?

QHY IMG132E is quite a good camera, and relatively inexpensive. The instruction manual just recently became available in english and that simplifies things considerably!

Point Grey Research is one of the best. The Flea 3, Grasshopper Express are 2 that come to mind.
