Custom astrocam

hello everyone, this is my custom astrocam i made from a microsoft HD webcam pro. pretty easy mod and produces, in my opinion, amazing pictures when developed in registax. this is my first attempt and unfortunatly i didnt take a step by step of the procedure but it was basic. The parts i do remember is i cut small bits of rubber and mounted arount the cmos sensor to keep stray light away aswell as wrapping it with elec tape. the mount is just a old eyepiece pulled apart and hot glued centre. Also the mic of the webcam was removed to keep noise out of the image
