32/64 bit Linux kernel drivers for SBIG USB CCD cameras including
the JSbigCamSrv and JWebCamSrv - Java servers and
clients applications for
The JSbigCamSrv application
allows you to control your SBIG USB CCD
cameras either locally or via the network. The released packages include all the
necessary shared libraries including SBIG's hex, bin and C header
files. Please note,
the Linux kernel drivers are based on SBIG proprietary code, so if you
source code, contact SBIG directly. This software is free, but is copyright by Jan

from the author.
The JWebCamSrv application
captures the B/W video images and stores them as series of
FITS files. Internally, the JWebCamSrv produces the B/W images with 8
bit resolution which is saved as 16 bit FITS files.
The server uses the uvcvideo kernel driver which has to be installed
first. This web camera server was tested with my two Logitech QuickCam
cameras and shots up to 3-4 frames/sec with the resolution 1600 x
There are also simple JSbigCamCli
and JWebCamCli Java console
applications for controlling the servers.

I have basically finished an INDI
server-client driver for SBIG CCD cameras. This driver allows you to
control the SBIG CCD cameras either
locally or remotely via the powerful KStars, EXphem or any other
supporting the INDI communication protocol.
