Not aware of anything like this. Certainly the mainstream software programs
don't support this option.
Good question about subframes; haven't seen a camera yet that supported it.

Subject: [ccd-newastro] Crazy idea - guide with a digital camera?
I was just thinking about a guide camera and was wondering if you could
use any of the available digital cameras as a guidecam? I think some of
the available models have small enough pixels for good pixel scale, and
a nice FOV so you could find a guide star. And doing a several second
exposure doesn't require any pin lifting.
What I'm not sure about is if any of the cameras allow subframe readout,
meaning you can read out less than the entire frame.
Just a crazy idea - comments?
