After seeing all of the new ZWO planet cams, I think Im ready to pick something to do planet imaging with. I have a 12” f4 newtonian and an apm 2.7x coma correcting barlow so I will be at F10.8 and a fl of 3,240mm. What osc camera sensor would pair best with my setup for planetary?

At f/10.8 your set-up is screaming for the ASI678MC!!!  Almost spot on 5x pixel size for that camera.

I've had mine for about a month been imaging at both f/10 and f/15.  Plenty of posts of mine floating about for your to evaluate.
