I've hacked up cams before to do interesting things to them, like attaching them to 1600mm f/6.3 10 inch diameter telescopes with great success. Here's one of my images with a hacked astro/webcam.

Uhoh, I bet you just got Tom's attention. I noticed a pretty nice telescope in the video he posted when he finally got his camera
