It does not - interlaced shutter in that camera/sensor make it very bad at short exposures of unstable object image. Plus it's a 16-bit / low gain/speed camera.

I don't think the non square pixels help either. I have a DSII Color and turned it on the moon once or twice, but the moon didn't really look good so I never tried anything else. I use it for guiding and nothing else.
