Any cheap webcam and a few random plumbing part to use one afocally - it
just require a bit of patience to centre it up and make it rigid.

And maybe some duck tape.

The webcam will give much better results with its lens removed and the camera used in either "prime" focus or with eyepiece or Barlow. YMMV.

Plus, the sensors are so small no eyepiece is needed to image planets.

A 3x Barlow might be helpful. YMMV.
