See my post under User Photos. I'm doing just that. and it does work!

Currently I'm waiting for my Quickcam 3000. This should be much more sensitive then the Quickcam Express i'm using now. I can reach mag 5 on and etx90 guiding my lx200. If I had a reducer for the 90 I would probably get mag 8 but I'm hoping the QC 3000 will reach mag 10. If not I can allways rig it for long exposure like the Philips.
