Santa Barbara Instruments Group manufactures and sells digital CCD cameras for astronomy. The camera software produces these formats. ThumbsPlus can load both grayscale and color image; for 16-bit grayscale, ThumbsPlus uses the range of pixels as last viewed or processed by SBIG software.

 

Note: The older .ST4 format files may be defined as 192 x 165 8-bit grayscale raw files, with a 192 byte skip at the end of the file.
