Drivers\software for the ZWO ASI camera

Sign in to follow this  


In preparation for my first nights viewing (been cloudy since I bought the telescope) I readup on how the ZWO camera is used and supporting software

Firstly went to the ZWO website (https://astronomy-imaging-camera.com/software-drivers) and downloaded the following onto my Windows 10 laptop;

  • ASI drivers
  • ASICAP software - to capture images with the camera

At the same time I also downloaded FireCapture (http://www.firecapture.de/) as this seems to be the most populate software for working with ZWO ASI cameras  - I could be wrong though !!

Unpacked the camera and plugged it into the laptop (via USB lead) and fired up Firecapture - it gives you the option of ZWO camera on startup and all seems to be working ok - getting an image from the camera

I also after watching some tutorials on the Firecapture site setup default folders to capture to and played around with some of the other settings\icons etc

So happy that the camera works and the laptop\software is setup and ready for my first observations
