So long as you have something in front of the lens, i.e. a lens or a telescope, then very unlikely to damage sensor.

Keep in mind, when you are filming video the sensor is exposed all that time as well. So, it may heat up and you may see a few (temporary) hot pixels or noise, but you shouldn't have to worry about damaging the sensor. Again, assuming you have a lens hooked up, etc etc

Just don't point it at the sun while doing video.
