How to get the lens off: pictures,
I bought mine some time ago so I did not know how to get the lens out (BTW, lens does not have an e at the end). In addition to the advice above there are pictures of the same body/lens shell dismantled at With Registax this webcam will perform well so here's hoping Morgan get some more.

Philips spc880 webcam (flashed) package.,
Excellent product at a competitive price. It does what it says on the tin and I am pleased with my purchase. It will be a valuable addition to my astronomy equipment. 

Philips SPC880 flashed webcam for astronomy,
Found this item and your website on a google search looking for the SPC900 which has now been discontinued. Webcam works fantastic! download of the drivers and instructions were clear and gives better control of the user settings, best when used with Wx Astrocapture. Great service, friendly, knowledgable telephone staff- highly recommended item.

web cam phillips,
Very good, a good modest priced CCD, does what it says on the box.
