The Explore Scientific PMC-Eight Forum is managed by Jerry Hubbell, Vice President of Engineering for Explore Scientific, LLC. This group is about the PMC-Eight Mount Control System and the open-source OpenGOTO Community.

The PMC-Eight Mount Control System is delivered on several of the Explore Scientific mounts including the Losmandy G11, the Explore Scientific EXOS 2, and iEXOS 100 mounts. The PMC-Eight is delivered with the OpenGOTO Community open source ExploreStars Application available on Windows, Android, and the Apple iOS system. We also have available for download the  ASCOM Standard compliant PMC-Eight ASCOM driver for use with third-party ASCOM client programs such as Maxim DL and Cartes du Ciel.
This is a public forum for our customers to discuss their experience with the PMC-Eight System and associated mount hardware.
