    This Explore Scientific iEXOS-100 HD PMC-Eight Equatorial Tracker System Kit with Finder Scope & Azimuth Adjuster is a complete computerized Wi-Fi or wired GoTo system that pairs a proven German equatorial mount design with Explore Scientific's revolutionary PMC-Eight Precision Motion Control system to flawlessly navigate the night sky and track objects as they journey across it. In this special bundle package, the iEXOS-100 comes with a selection of accessories designed to further enhance the mount's performance in imaging situations. Included are the iEXOS-100 Polar Finder and Adapter, which has a reticle with both northern and southern hemisphere markings to ensure an imaging setup will meet the demanding alignment requirements for astrophotography anywhere in the world; a Twilight medium-duty tripod, which minimizes vibrations and allows users to add additional weight to the iEXOS-100 mount without compromising performance; and a camera dovetail plate, which makes it easy to attach a camera to the mount.

    Explore Scientific iEXOS-100-2 PMC-Eight Equatorial Go-To Tracker System

    Explore Scientific designed their iEXOS-100-2 PMC-Eight Equatorial Go-To Tracker System Mount to provide users with a precision platform built to support small-to-medium sized optical tubes and astrophotography and imaging rigs.

    ES continues their commitment to user-friendly gear with the PMC-Eight motor drive system that uses micro-stepper motors and a direct-drive belt connection between the drive shaft and motor to ensure accurate and smooth tracking for extended periods with minimal vibration and zero backlash. The entire PMC-Eight software suite is offered as open-source code so users can tweak the system and share their preferences with a growing community of enthusiasts.

    Keeping up with the latest technology, the common wired control system is augmented with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for remote control from Windows or Android/iOS tablets running the ExploreStars app. It has a database of over 70,000 objects and an intuitive user interface controlled with the device's touchscreen. Multiple alignment procedures, slew and tracking rates, and customized guided tours enable it to be easily set up and get users observing quickly with minimal frustration. Like the coding for the motor drive system, the app is open source, so it can be customized and those modifications shared. A non-volatile memory and Real-Time clock preserve settings, including backlash correction and Periodic Error Correction (PEC), when the system is turned off and power is disconnected.

    Explore Scientific DSLR Camera Vixen-Style Dovetail Assembly (11")

    The DSLR Camera Vixen-Style Dovetail Assembly from Explore Scientific is created from high-pressure injection die-cast aluminum for structural integrity and has a black anodized finish to resist scratches and abrasions. This V-block is 11" long and 1.77" wide and features a laser-etched scale in 2mm increments on one side to help you quickly determine the balance point when placing the camera on the mount head. The opposite side features a stainless steel strip to protect the dovetail casting when securing it to the mount head.

    This dovetail plate is machined with three available camera screw positions and comes complete with one 1/4"-20 attaching bolt and spring-loaded safety pin for mounting a camera body. Rubber anti-slip pads prevent unwanted camera movement and protect the camera body finish from marring. This dovetail assembly is suitable for use on all Explore Scientific mounts and other brands of mount that accept the popular Vixen-style dovetail plate design.
