Re: Wifi Connectivity

Oh, Cool. Even easier.
I think I was just glancing though a document and it showed connecting directly to the wifi module.


Re: Wifi Connectivity

You don't have to open the case, what gave you that idea? You just have to TELNET into the system and enter the command mode for the RN-131 ($$$) and then enter the configuration parameters. The only reason to open the case is if you cannot send the "factory reset" command to reset to factory defaults. The other way to do it is to use the PIO9 pin, GND and VDD pins. I have a procedure for this I can send to you if you really need it. I also have the commands to return it to the Explore Scientific configuration. If you change it, there is no guarantee it will connect to the ExploreStars app, we have not tested it yet by setting the IP_ADD and PORT to a WAN value. It is easier when using the ASCOM driver to set the IP_ADD and PORT.


Wifi Connectivity

W. Christopher Moses
 

Hi,

I'm pretty surprised that the general wifi connectivity isn't yet enabled. This is a major feature of the mount. However, I don't really mind opening up the case and telnet-ing in to configure the settings. Reading through the doc, it looks pretty straight forward.


Is this OK to do? Can you think of any problems it may cause?


If I can get it to work, I'll write a quick and dirty program for other users to use until a solution that doesn't involve opening the case is available.


Thanks,

Chris Moses


New Images taken at the MSRO

Here are images of M20, M13, and M51 taken with the Mark Slade Remote Observatory (MSRO) which has the Explore Scientific 152 ED APO CF refractor mounted on the Losmandy G11 with PMC-Eight control system. We also have the Telescope Drive Master drive correction system installed. The M20 is a 60 minute exposure, the M51 is a 2.5 hour exposure, and the M13 is a 110 minute exposure. The M51 and M13 were processed by world famous astrophotographer Jack Newton. I imaged and processed the M20 image.

Introduction to the Explore Scientific PMC-Eight

hubbell_jerry@...
 

Welcome to the Explore Scientific PMC-Eight group! This group is for you, our customers to ask questions and discuss anything and everything about the new PMC-Eight mount control system. The PMC-Eight product line is the basis for the OpenGOTO Community, the open-source community for anyone interested in developing applications for the PMC-Eight Control System. I will be posting more on the OpenGOTO community in the future. In the meantime, please make yourself at home, I look forward to your questions and comments! I have included a poll if you wish to let us know what you think about the PMC-Eight.
