If you already own a Losmandy G11 Equatorial mount you can now
upgrade it with Explore Scientific's PMC-8 electronics and motor
systems. Improving on the already legendary performance of the Losmandy
G11, Explore Scientific has developed this upgrade along side Losmandy
for high performance and precision engineering. Explore Scientific's
PMC-8 electronics offer powerful performance with 8 CPU's that run
independantly on a 2-Channel Multi-Processor Micro-controller.
Housed in the multi-professor systems is a 64 kilobyte EEPROM
non-volatile memory bank which is used to store parameters. This
extreme redundancy provides exceptional accuracy in tracking and
slewing. The included wireless ethernet 10/100 allows for full IP
function allowing you to control your mount from anywhere either via a
web browser, ASCOM or app over a web connection or serial port direct
connection. The PMC-8 electronics also include an ST4 autoguiding port,
connecting your guide camera to the same system.
With the PMC-8 hardware, you'll also get Explore Scientific's
ExploreStars Open GoTo system. This user friendly GoTo System interface
is user friendly with rich full color graphics for the major objects
with interesting details and scientific data included. There are 70,000
objects in the starter database, included in the free download for
Windows PC or mobile devices. Visit Explore Scientific's website to
download additional catalogs. What makes ExploreStars Open GoTo truly
unique is that it is an open source GoTo program allowing you to use
your own code to create anything you might want like a Messier maraton, a
to image list of objects - anything you can think up, you can ask the
ExploreStars program to do.
