Specification wise. Is there any other brand that stacks up?

Heya,

 

The panasonic sensor (MN34230) is in all the cameras that are different brands, but the sensor is the same. So QHY, ZWO, etc, take your pick. The sensor isn't going to be different. Just the slight implementation differences by the manufacturer, but don't expect any significant differences. All major software support all of them without issue. They're mature camera sensors and systems.

 

Very best,
