I have the CCD sensor from an old Sony Handycam (Sony DCR-HC36), What can I do with it?


Can I somehow mod it so that I can use it with a telescope? (for lunar and planetary photos) I have attached an image of the sensor.

It's been removed from the electronics that supported it - do you still have those
?

Well, technically you probably can, but you'll have to build some complex electronics to read it.

Without the support circuitry to capture the signals, (and charge the charge-couple device) it won't be capturing images of anything :(
