The ZWO cameras, and I will assume most of the USB connected cams, show up as a camera in Windows 10. Set that as your camera in your streaming software, focus, and broadcast. A few years ago a group ran a stream called the "Virtual Star party" and live streamed the moon and planets over youtube. They used a mic, and set the astro camera as their output device.
Deep sky will probably need a desktop share and live stacking software, but can be done.

Thanks for the information. I will set something up and try streaming next month.

PS I don’t get ads inserted into my outgoing live YouTube streams while live. Others who are using the free YouTube may see ads on later playbacks to replace the $10/month for YouTube Premium, a fee well worth t in my opinion.

Twitch.tv and Youtube are both good options. There are others but not as popular.
You'll need OBS Studio (free download) and learn where to put the streaming key and how to set it all up. Buy a usb headset from Amazon to get you started because you don't want the microphone to pick up the sound from external speakers.
Just search youtube on how to stream on youtube or twitch.
Lots of guides.

... and spend some time in the EAA forum here on CN. Live broadcasting has been one of the fundamental "technologies" used over the years in the live video/EAA observing world.
