PowerShot sx60 HD (1.00f)

I want to be able to use my PS SX60 HD for astrophotography (30-second exposures).
I exchanged messages a year ago with another member of this forum, and he helped me to determine that my camera's firmare version is 1.00f. However, I was unable to get the software to load onto my camera or SD Card. Now I am trying again...
1) I did not find a "stable version" (v. 1.4.1) of CHDK at <chdk.fandom,com/wiki/download> I DID find an "Unstable New Version" (v. 1.5.0), and I downloaded both versions (Full and Small) to my PC and also to my camera's SD card. I unpacked them to both places using the "Stuffit Expander. Neither the DISKBOOT.BIN nor the PS.FI2 files appeared anywhere.
2) I also downloaded and opened "Stick" on my PC, and I tried dragging a photo taken with my camera into the Stick folder on the SD Card. Nothing happened.

It does not look as though anyone has posted anything about my camera to this forum for a very long time.
a) Please tell me whether anyone else has successfully loaded and used this software on the PowerShot SX60 HS.
b) Please direct me to a Forum thread or to an individual who will likely be able to walk me through every step so that I can accomplish that mission.

Thanks very much,
Geezer6711

You only need the "full" version.

The  SX60HS 100f does zip does contain DISKBOOT.BIN.  The SX60 builds do not include a PS.FI2 file, because firmware update loading is known to have problems.

The 100f port was working when it was added to the autobuild, as reported by the developer who did the port and others.

Don't forget what the H stands for.

If drag & drop does not work with STICK on your PC, use the "Browse" button instead.
