I was wondering if you can tell me which is a better choice of camera for astrophotography, a cmos format or ccd? If one is better can you please explain why?

Thankyou for help

Neither one is necessarily better, more a matter of the individual specs on the camera in terms of resolution, chip size, processing software and so on.
