With the new telescope I have been seeing quite a lot of people are hacking usb web cameras to attach to telescopes. After some reading and a rummage in the dark corners of a box of bits I have found a web cam it's a Maplin 720p HD web cam.
Aluminium web cam adaptor for SPC880 / SPC900 web cams that seem to be the armature astronomer's favourite with 1.25" filter thread.
I had to do some drilling of the web cam case for the adaptor to fit but behold it works. You also need to remove the blue led's as well please see below.
I have tested it in day light looking at tiles on the roof and it seems to focus OK. Just waiting for a clear night to give it a real go.
