Product Description

Explore Scientific PMC-8 Upgrade for Losmandy G11 Mount

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 independently 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 marathon, a to image list of objects - anything you can think up, you can ask the ExploreStars program to do.
