Hi Craig -

My older SBIG ST-8 will run on a Mac - but requires a SCSI interface, which has not been included in Macs for the last several years. I have to borrow an old G3 laptop back from my kids to run CCDOPS for Mac. The best bet would be to bite the bullet and get a Windows laptop - then you can use any camera and image acquisition/processing software.

If you are looking to use a digital camera with your telescope, there are many more choices.
