Microsoft LifeCam Cinema HD Modification

Recommended Posts

Well, I decided to have a go at the modification the MS Lifecam Cinema HD camera as per the great instructions set out by GHONIS...

Instructions for Converting Microsoft Lifecam Cinema HD Webcam for Telescope Use -by Gary Honis

Instead of using eyepiece extenders I used a NexImage reducer which I had inadvertantly dropped and thought it might be of some use anyways.....

The only thing left to do is to black out the Blue led light and add some glue to the backl to make it firm. I hadn't done this yet...just in case....

It seems to work when I open SharpCap although the proof of the pudding will be to download the software as per GHONIS and stick it in the SW150 (Snow Gods Willing...)

Anyways attached some pics and I must say it does look good and I have even lined the sensor with the Logo so I know its perpendicular (If that makes sense)....:)
