    Is there an ASCOM driver for operating a CFW-9 in Windows 10/8/7? If so, what is the Internet link to where I can download that driver? (The ASCOM download site does not list a CFW-9 driver, but says to ask the equipment manufacturer.) If there is not an ASCOM driver, is there an SBIG driver? If so, what is the link to where I can download it?

    The CFW9 can only be operated via an SBIG CCD camera.

    For use with an SBIG camera, the program I am using offers several SBIG filter wheels. Is there one of these offered filter wheels that I can choose which will control my CFW-9? Offered filter wheels: Automatic, CFW2, CFW5, CFW8/8A, CFWL, CFWY, CFW6A, CFW10A, CFW10A Serial, or FW8-STXL.

    Probably CFW8 will work... but you should really check with the author of the software you are using.

    Suggestion from our support department - select CFW-10. Just don't try to use slots 6 through 10 as they won't exist.
