You would need the Vista drivers. Download them from Celestron.

I might () be buying a SW Auto-tracking Dob or Celestron 8SE in the near (or not so near) future so I'm assuming that it would work nicely with them as well.
I have one and it is no-where near as sensitive as my Atik 16ic, but it was a quarter the price. It works fine on my C8 but I wouldn't use it for deep space imaging. I can use the it as a guide camera on my ST80 as long as there is something of about mag 6 or better in view.

The DMK is probably better long term value.
