    Hi all!!

    I found this SBIG camera but it doesn't have the model written on it. Could anyone help me to know the model and how to make it work?

    It looks rather like the head of an ST-4.

    Does it have an ST-4 control box with it? It's a black box with buttons and an LED display.

    Hi Doug!! Thanks for your fast answer.

    Yes, it has this box. Could I take any photo with they?

    It's 25+ years old but those units were quite reliable. The resolution of the camera is only 192 x 164 pixels, and it produces 8-bit images.

    The ST-4 was primarily intended as a standalone autoguider, but it can take images.

    Manual and software are available here:
