There was interest is relatively high-end cameras with features like panning and zooming, especially IR cameras that would be usable during active observing.  It appears that one vendor (don’t have the name) from a few years ago is no longer reachable and that Amazon or eBay is the only source.  The observatory would prefer a non-orphaned product, needless to say.

The folks at LCOGT seem a likely source of information, since they operate
a bunch of unattended telescopes.
