I think you should nail down whether you want a OSC or a mono first. There is a big difference between them and what's involved using them.

Mono cameras are much more sensitive when comparing apples to apples, but they also require filter wheels and filters and are more work to use than one shot colors.

Once you decide if you want mono or OSC, then I would start looking at the specific cameras.

One of the biggest differences depends upon where you are imaging from. Is it a dark site or do you have significant light pollution. If it is the latter then you can get good results with narrowband imaging with a mono camera.
