No its just the mounting the tube, I ordred the MS Lifecam as well.

They have both arrived yesterday, now I'm going to mod the CCD and put it in the tube, that's if I don't break it ;)

I will let you know how I get on

Regards

Bill

thanks for that guys.
I have ordered this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Microsoft-LifeC ... omputers_1
which is the 1080p version - will this be able to be retro-fitted to the adaptor???
Cheers
Andy

Hi Andy

The one I got was the Microsoft Lifecam Cinema HD

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002 ... 00_s00_i00

Not had time to pull it to pieces yet, check out this web site to see if it looks the same

http://ghonis2.ho8.com/lifecam/lifecam1.html

Regards

Bill

Phil

Bugger!
Don't tell me I've been too clever & bought a webcam that I can't mod to fit onto my scope! I guess that I'll have to wait to get the adaptor from billet.
Would a tapered adaptor be suitable if mine is bigger than the one you guys have???
PS that looks like a bit of an emotional mod Pete!!!
Good luck with it Bill
:shock:
Let me know how you get on.
Cheers
Andy

A little update. I have received my webcam. The outer (silver casing) is approx 29mm. The internal black casing is 26.5(ish)mm using a crude Disney ruler!!!!
Do i have to strip the webcam internals from the outer silver casing to make it fit into the adaptor???

Cheers
Andy

Thanks Bill,
will have a lash at dismantling the webcam - maybe not right now as I've been at a bash & have consumed far too many mohito's to try anything more complex than logging onto the Mac!!!
Will have a read of the link on how to do it & report back - whether I'm stuck or I've had varying degrees of success!!!
Cheers
Andy
