Starlight Xpress MX7/MX9 USB 1.1

This plug-in driver is available as part of the Obsolete Driver Pack.

Please note that we strongly recommend loading the newer Universal firmware into the camera and using the SX Universal driver instead of using this legacy driver.

For this driver, please select SX MX7/9 USB on the Setup tab.

The Starlight Xpress MX716 USB, and MX916 USB cameras connect to the PC via a USB interface. These cameras are identical from a control standpoint. The appropriate Starlight Xpress USB drivers that come with the camera must be installed for the camera to work. Click here for MX7C USB cameras.

Set Readout Mode to Interleave for full resolution images, or Fast for interpolated images. Interleave will automatically switch between the "progressive" and "interlaced" mode when set to Interleave, depending on the exposure duration. The Update Progress setting is used to disable progress bar updates during image download. Doing so can prevent horizontal streaking caused by pauses in the readout.

The Advanced button brings up the Starlight Xpress Hex File Utility.

The Starlight Xpress cameras use open-loop cooling, so the cooler controls are not enabled when this camera is in use.

Availability of this feature depends on Product Level.
