V3 for sky/weather camera, longevity?

I have a v3 pointing at the southern sky but it has totally washed out and gotten blurry. I have seen a few posts doing sky cameras, but has anyone left one aiming at the sky for years? How is it working now?

I used to have a BloomSky weather station with camera and it was awesome for this. It did a daily timelapse as well; I think just one pic every five minutes, not live video stream however.

I have another v3 outside pointing at bird feeders and it has always been a little blurry. I think I got these two right when they first released so I’ve wondered if they are slightly defective.
