Does anyone out there know what the (very brief) list of Laptop SCSI Adapers will work with the Pictor Series CCDs?

Yes, I know they are museum pieces, and probably no longer supported, But I know someone that just got his hands on one, and wants to try it out.

Hi,

I forgot the make and model I had, but I threw it away a couple weeks before I read your post. Sorry. If your friend gets the camera going, I have a color filter wheel for the 416, 1616 which can be had pretty cheaply. My 416 worked better using the parallel port as I remember... then the shutter died and since Meade couldn't repair it....

I did find a reference to it on the Cyanogen web site (they support MaximDL, and have aboout the only good write up of the Pictoir SCSI support out there).
I'll see if he wants a filter wheel for it...
