Re: PMC-Eight for other mounts?

Wes Mcdonald

The PMC8 is not integrated to encoders....have to ask Jerry if that is in the cards.  The losmandy upgrade employs a TDM to manage the velocity of the shaft and has its own high res encoder not interfaced to the PMC8.

At least I believe all of the above is correct.

The only magic about putting in a PMC 8 on another scope would be working out the drive chain.
