Part of my problem is to mount said webcam to the scope. The lens opening is on the side and I attach it with elastic bands, but it is quite a thing to move it. Can I make a plastic tube, with one end glued to the webcam (over the opening) and the other end to slide into eyepiece holder? If so, how long should this tube be?

Tube needn't be too long ... so long as you can achive focus. If you can make the chip sit at a similar height to where a 4 or 6mm eye piece normally would, it should be focussable.

I remembered that I had an old damaged eyepiece (received it damaged back after lending it out). I can use the sliding tube of that and attach the webcam with Prestick. That will allow me to move it, to centre the image. Hope it's going to be long enough. Going to try it out now on a distant tower.

Not quite down so you can see the flag yet, but a big improvement over previous effort. Very difficult to focus. Will try next time without 2X Barlow lens. Very early morning tomorrow so can't do it now, but check this spot on the weekend.
