anyhow, i have a thread on peltier cooling for this cam, one that i'm hoping to undertake as soon as i get my 15mm x 15mm peltier. I find it gets pretty hot after only a few minutes of use, so, i cut away the housing to expose the aluminum coldfinger, as shown in the images below, that connects to the back of the chip where i will be placing the peltier... so if i could get a mod for long exposure combined with the peltier cooler, well... here's dreaming
notice the teflon tape around the front of the housing... this works great, it allows me to simply screw it into the adapter for a tight fit, centering the unit precisely every time

You don't need to cut anything. Just open the front cover and remove the lens, leave the autofocus system in place. It will even offer some kind of protection to your sensor.
I found out too late.
Any truth to this?
Also, is this the 1.25" extension tubes you used, AFAdrenaline? http://agenaastro.co...-extension.html

Did you happen to take measurements of the sensor's physical size (ie, millimeters height x width overall) while you had the webcams open? I'm looking to modify one of these with a wide-field lens, and I can't find the sensor size specs anywhere--I need that last bit of info to calculate angle of view. =/
