Very interesting. Congratulations

Is this a "one shot"? Can you clean the water off the CCD without killing it? And I guess your magnification is limited to about 50x.

And I guess your magnification is limited to about 50x. this depend on the webcam..

Well it would be easy enough to figure, screen dimension divided by sensor dimension.

Yep, this was a very cheap webcam (320x240 pixels)

No, is not one shot.... the CCD has a protective layer over it.... you can shot and shot the times you want.
