    If you have an internet connection, the low-level drivers for the camera should install automatically from Windows Update when you plug in and power up the camera.

    The camera should show up in the Device Manager as "SBIG Camera" under "Universal Serial Bus Controllers". If it is showing an error right-click on it and select Update Drivers.

    If you do not have an internet connection, the low-level driver files are available on the memory stick included with the camera. Those files are under \DL Imaging Driver (Aluma, STC, StarChaser)\System Drivers.

    You also need to have the DL Imaging drivers installed. Those drivers can be installed from the memory stick; they are in \DL Imaging Driver (Aluma, STC, StarChaser)\System Drivers. You can also download them form our web site. The version on the web site might be newer than those on the memory stick; the direct link to download is https://diffractionlimited.com/down/SetupDLAPI.exe

    If you require ASCOM, also install https://diffractionlimited.com/down/DLImagingASCOMDriverInstaller.exe

    Manuals for all SBIG cameras are available on the memory stick, and on the product page on our web site, under Downloads. Here are direct links for current DL Imaging-based SBIG camera models:

    Aluma AC Series: https://diffractionlimited.com/downloads/SBIG_Aluma_AC_Series_Users_Manual.pdf

    Aluma CCD Series: https://diffractionlimited.com/downloads/AlumaUsersManual.pdf

    STC-7: https://diffractionlimited.com/downloads/STC-7_User_Manual.pdf

    STC-428: https://diffractionlimited.com/downloads/STC-428-OEM_User_Manual.pdf

    STC-428-P includes a filter wheel that is very similar to the FW8-8300; FW manual is available from:

    StarChaser guiders: https://diffractionlimited.com/downloads/StarChaser_User_Manual.pdf

    Older SBIG cameras use the "SBIG Universal" drivers. They are available from ftp://ftp.sbig.com/pub/SetupDriverChecker64.exe

    Macintosh and Linux drivers are also available; please contact us for the correct version for your system.
