Modified Webcam, the cheap option.


Recommended Posts

Evening All,

I Had a play around with an old webcam this afternoon.

I took it to bits and removed the lens, so that the CMOS sensor gives a RAW image.

I've taped the camera to a 1.25in t-piece with black electrical tape, so I can slot it into the telescope.

Seems to fit ok.

I've tried it in daylight and it seems to work quite well.

I'm going to have a play around and see what I can get out of it tonight if its not too cloudy.
