Gyro Unit sensitivity

If I built a 3 axis mount for a camera, would any of the gyro boards here be sensitive enough to detect the rotation of the Earth? I think it would be a cool project to build a self-orienting camera mount for star tracking and long exposure night shots…

Although the rotation of the earth is a much smaller angular rate than we would normally expect to be able to measure with a MEMS gyroscope, it seems like it might be possible to do with some complex techniques as described in this paper.

However, I am not sure whether that approach would be practical for your application.


Thank You!!!
