SBIG CCD and Filter Wheel driver
All SBIG CCD USB and Ethernet cameras along with connected to them filter wheels.
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 Camera Simulator
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 camera firmware when camera is connected on the recent versions of MacOSX without disabling some security features of the operating system. If you are affected, please refer to Apple documentation how to enable loading of unsigned kernel extensions.
