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

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 :(
