Dghent is looking into creating an ASCOM driver for the SBIG and if successful we could use these cameras with the newer image capture software like NINA and Voyager (without needing TheSkyX or MaximDL). I've made some progress on a SBIG ASCOM driver. SBIG Driver Checker's primary file takes about 120.00 KB (122880 bytes) and its name is SBIGDriverChecker.exe. SBIG Driver Checker contains of the executables below. They occupy 194.95 KB (199625 bytes) on disk. SBIGDriverChecker.exe (120.00 KB) unins000.exe (74.95 KB) This info is about SBIG Driver Checker version 220.127.116.11 alone.
All SBIG CCD USB and Ethernet cameras along with connected to them filter wheels and adaptive optics. Delcom products driver.
This driver supports hot-plug (multiple devices).
This driver depends on 3rd party library and is supported on Linux (Intel 32/64 bit and ARM v6+) and MacOS.
INDIGO Astronomy open-source license (3rd party library is closed source).
Driver is developed and tested with:
- SBIG ST-2000XCM
- SBIG ST-7XE
- SBIG CFW-8A
- SBIG AO-7
- SBIG Camera Simulator
Legacy Filter wheels
CFW8 and CFW6A are legacy filter wheels and can not be auto detected. In order to usethem one should set environment variable SBIG_LEGACY_CFW to CFW8 or CFW6A like:
This will expose the device even it is not really present.
AO-8 and later are auto detected, but AO-7 cannot be auto detected. In order to use itone should set environment variable SBIG_LEGACY_AO to AO7 like:
This will expose the device even if it is not really present.
MacOS SDK distributed separately (MacOS only)
On MacOS the driver requires the SDK provided by the camera manufacturer:ftp://ftp.sbig.com/pub/SBIGDriverInstallerUniv.dmg
This third party software is not digitally signed by the vendor, therefore it may fail to load the camerafirmware when camera is connected on the recent versions of MacOSX without disabling some security featuresof the operating system. If you are affected, please refer to Apple documentation how to enable loading ofunsigned kernel extensions.
