you would probably choose a mono camera such as the imaging source 640 x480 pixels ( 3-400 ish) or a little more upmarket is the dragonfly stuff.

i use the imaging source camera, the downside is that color filters are needed for jupiter etc, but the moon is black and white mostly so unless you uber crank up the color its irrelevant.

of course you will then want a bigger scope, couple of televue powermates, filter wheel , filters..... argggggh

What scope are you going to use it on?
How serious do you want to get into it?
What's your budget?
Do you want mono+filters, or one shot colour?
