    Hi guys,

    does anybody modified it for long exposure?
    Do you think it could be done by software?

    https://www.google.com/search?client...ntrol+software it seems that there are several programs available for webcam control, but I am not sure if the 360 cam is compatible with these programs. Exposure control is certainly something you would find in an astrophotography based application.

    I've read with interest the posts regarding adapting an xbox live camera for astrophotography. A couple of weeks ago I decided to have a go at adapting a cam. After purchasing an xbox live camera from ebay for £5, I set about the transformation.
    The cam was stripped down to a just the circuit board, sensor and cable. I also removed the IR filter. I decided that a plastic project box that I'd seen in Maplins for £3 would be idea for housing the cam. I also purchased a 1.25" webcam adapter with IR filter built in.
    After reading other posts on the internet I realised that some sort of cooling system would be needed to reduce noise. I bought a heat sink and a thermo conductive pad for £1.95 and a 40mm, 12v fan (which will run off a 5v supply, albeit slightly slower.)
    The box was prepared to take the electronics. The fan was fitted and connected to the supply on the board. Ventilation holes were drilled into the case.
    I've not had clear skies since, but I've viewed terrestrial objects with great success.
    I hope to be able to post results as soon as I get the chance.

    Ciao Andy,

    your modification is very interesting...
    Could you post more details as electrical connection for fan and camera layout inside the box?

    Hi Adaing,
    The USB supply to the board is made by a very small plug and socket. There are 5 connections.
    The fan I used had 2 cables, red/black. Simply, solder the red+ cable to the tail on the back of the board, which corresponds to the red USB cable. The black cable, solder to the tail at the opposite end of the socket.
    It's quite an awkward job to do, but not complicated.
