David, I would propose with CMOS the best strategy is to pick a range of exposures and stick to them. Then given the low read noise just add more exposures as needed. 3 or 4 should be than enough say 1, 10, 100, …. They also tend to be USB 3 with fast download so you don’t  lose much time between frames.
