IMO, a good start. I took a quick look in general, and watched the video "how do I install Explorestars and the PMC-Eight ASCOM driver". Hit a couple of bumps with that:
- A bit confusing that they're back-to-back in the same video, as they're mutually exclusive and have different use cases. Might want to re-edit into two videos.
- The current downloads web page doesn't have the ASCOM platform link that the video talks about, anymore. Probably should put that back.
- The PMC-8 driver file named on the page doesn't match the one that's physically linked.
- The file that's physically linked is just ES_PMC8_Setup.exe. No version in the name, and when you click on it, a security warning is thrown (win 7) "publisher could not be verified", "no valid digital signature". Norton warns as well, as it's only seen the file a very few times before.
The antivirus thing, at least, appears to be easy enough to get past. I had Webroot give a false positive on my astro laptop, over the new version of DSS. Posted a note on the new DSS forum, the developers uploaded a copy (somewhere... :-) on the Webroot site for them to check, and poof, it was moved to the whitelist. I expect the same holds for Norton.
Hope this helps...

Subject: [ESPMC-Eight] Updated Knowledge Base on Explore Scientific Website
I have reorganized the knowledge base articles for the PMC-Eight to make it easier to find what you are looking for. I have revised them to have the question as the title of the article and updated the content of the answers. I will continue to add articles (mostly on the technical side) as time goes on based on all the questions I have received and answered over the past year and a half about the PMC-Eight system. Please let me know what you think about the new structure. I probably will add a section for the Application Notes as I create additional ones.
