Explore Scientific iEXOS-100 GOTO PMC 8 German Equatorial Mount
The iEXOS-100 is a complete computerized Wifi or Wired GOTO Equatorial Tracker mount with integrated PMC-Eight electronics suitable for attaching a small telescopes or DSLR Camera to a standard Vixen Style Dovetail Plate. The mount also has an ST4 compatible autoguider port for autoguiding if needed.
This lightweight mount is an excellent choice as a grab and go mount with full GOTO capability. Its ideal for very light optics such as small 60mm - 80mm Refractors or as a Star tracker for larger DSLR cameras with larger lenses. It has no hand controller and is completely controlled using a tablet, laptop or desktop computer - either via Wifi or directly wired.
The PMC-Eight with its versatile connections is supported by free downloadable apps for Windows, Android, and iOS ready to connect to your favorite ASCOM Compliant Astronomical Software, allowing you to control the telescope from a few feet away or via an Internet connection from virtually anywhere in the world.
One of the standout features of the iEXOS-100 system is its German equatorial design. When it comes to tracking the stars with a telescope, there is nothing that compares to a German equatorial mount because it will follow objects as they rise in the east and set in the west. Before you can track an object, you need to find it, and that objective can be daunting when you’re faced with a vast expanse of inky black sky. The iEXOS-100 puts a powerful GOTO system at your finger tips that takes the frustration out of navigating the night sky. This integrated version of Explore Scientific’s PMC-Eight™ system transcends the industry standard single processor by utilizing eight CPUs that operate independently of one another to focus on defined functions. This delegation of tasks among the processors results in a system that offers superior responsiveness, efficiency, reliability and astoundingly fast timing intervals for seamless images and accurate tracking.
Although it is internally complex, the GOTO system can be easily operated from your own Apple, Android or Windows tablet using the ExploreStars app, which has an intuitive nature that makes it simple and quick to align your telescope, navigate the stars and learn specifics about tens of thousands of celestial objects. The iEXOS-100 has locking clutches that will let you quickly reposition your telescope from one side to the other and an altitude knob for smooth height adjustments. The mount base includes a small polar alignment tunnel that allows users to roughly align their observing setup with Polaris. It also has a simple bubble level that comes in handy when stabilizing your tripod. Other features include a bracket for holding the battery pack, which powers the PMC-Eight system™ through 8 C batteries (not included); two 1 kg counterweights for balancing; and glow-in-the-dark markers on certain points of the mount and tripod so you can stay oriented with your setup at night.
Important Note: To start using the ExploreStars app, download the free app and download the celestial data set that contains the astronomical catalogs, reference images, and reference text. Simply by unzipping the ExploreStars folder containing the expanded celestial data set into your Pictures directory, you will expand the native database from a thousand objects to over seventy thousand objects.
