Hi Peter,

Thanks for your quick reply. As far as I can tell, there are no ASCOM drivers for SBIG cameras. If you know of a source, that would be excellent. I do know how to script ascom components from Autoit and VBscript, so that would work for me.

To answer your other questions, I am using Windows 7, 64 bit.

Hi,
This is excellent, as it comes just at the moment that I want to be able to control an SBIG ST-i from a Windows script. I have downloaded wINDI, and it comes up, but the only CCD cameras available are an ASCOM driver for Nebulosity, and two CCD simulators. I have the SBIG drivers installed, but they do not appear in the options. How do I get wINDI to recognize an SBIG camera??

Second, once I get that part working, is there a simple way to take an image? I am familiar with the Indi library on linux, and have worked through the examples using get_prop and set_prop to take an image (at least with the simulator), but how do I do that in Windows? Can I invoke get_prop and set_prop in the same way (say from a vbasic script or an autoit script), or what must I do?

I can't seem to find any documentation.
