Do people do webcam mods anymore?

I have an old Quickcam Pro, which I stuck a 1.25" nosepiece in, and a SPC900, which came with an adapter and IR block filter. Both of them are unmodified and both have the Sony ccd chip. I am thinking of getting a ccd camera for DSO work, but that will have to wait until the $$$ equation is more in my favor.
In the meantime, I intend to modify one of the webcams for LX and Amp off and use it as a planetary cam. But do people do them still? Or have dedicated planetary cams like Imgming Source pretty much got it all covered?
I see a few members have done them but I am a complete novice when it comes to electronics.
Thanks, Bo
