I have just completed a 10" F8 mirror. Most of the other bits are finished, a friend has given me the following CCD 1/4" 290000 pixel (512 x 560 pixel) amplified video ccd. Can I remove the lens and use the scope as a lens if I put the camera into a housing with optical flat window at front end? I would like to bring images onto video tape and use video capture card to grab images. Has anyone tried this? Please e-mail me with any --- ANY suggestions! Many thanks John B.
