Re: Does Explore Stars only work on WiFi for a PC running Windows? #ExploreStars

As far as I know, the application Explore Stars only works with wifi. You can get the mount to work with a serial connection and an ascom driver, but I don't think these work with ExploreStars. If you want to use a serial connection, the ascom device hub and Cartes du Ciel work well.

What Type of mount are you using right now?


Does Explore Stars only work on WiFi for a PC running Windows? #ExploreStars

David
 

Hi all,

Newbie question as I’ve trawled the forum and can’t see an answer. Does Explore Stars only work with WiFi?

I have installed it on my laptop and everything works fine over WiFi.

I then follow the application note and switch to Serial via parallax and putty programs and get all the correct messages as per the AN but when I connect the serial cable the green light briefly flashes when I connect the serial cable, but then goes out when I start Explore Stars.

I’m running the latest firmware etc. but tried two laptops and neither works.

any help greatly appreciated.

TIA
David

Hi many thanks, thought it sounded odd. I've just put in a support request as just got the mount. Not sure I want to strip it just yet in case I do something to the warranty.

Re: Loud Clicking noise from RA motor #EXOS2 #VIDEO

 

What Wes said...   The motor whirr is normal, but the ticking is not.  Should be easy to remedy, though.

No that is not right.   Something is slipping or some thing.  

1.  Suggest you pull it apart and check the set screws that hold the pulleys on the shafts of the worm and the motor.  If you look in the files section of the Main subgroup you will find a document by bob hoskins that outlines how to get thing s apart and do adjustments.  Lots of stuff in there so just do the things related to opening the motor case to gain access to the pulley set screws and maybe make sure the belt is not snagging in the case .  

Perhaps others have resolved an issue like this?  If so chime in!

Hi I have just received my EXOS2-PMC8. It makes a quite pronounced clicking noise from the RA motor - mp4 attached. You can hear it at the start of the attached movie file. Is this normal - it is with an empty mount, i.e. no scope, just for testing but it makes the noise at all times.

Many thanks,

Re: POTH Crashing

Todd

1.  What driver did you load.  You should use the one with a name containing “anycpu” or some such.

2.  Be sure to load a good driver for your iexos FTDI usb to serial adapter.

3.  When you load ascom be sure the ascom test passes 100% clean. For some unknown reason it does not always.

4.  You could try using ascom 6.5 and use their poth alternative.

5.  You don’t have some fancy IT stuff going on such as a virtual machine do you?  I think some on the forum do run on a VM but it’s not common I think and in my view is a good way for strange stuff to happen.

I can’t say why poth would be blowing up on you.  I have had it bomb a time or five but that was back when I was using a windows 10 tablet.  It hasn’t been a problem since I changed to a dell laptop, nor has it been a problem on my bootcamped Mac mini.  But I can assure you the likelihood of it being the iexos is vanishingly small, as I and many others have that thing.

Hi Todd,

I am sorry you are having these issues. Rest assured that the POTH works fine and has been working fine for several years with the PMC-Eight ASCOM driver. The issue is with your computer somehow. It is unfortunate that you have been suffering with this issue for a year. It appears that you only joined this forum about 4 1/2 months ago. I see you have posted your problem only one other time in June and you received a few responses with advice, but you never responded back after the advice was given.  

I see you question if the ASCOM platform is good or not, of course it is, thousands of people have used it for decades, and version 6.4 has been around for several years.  I have personally been using platform 6.4 and POTH in our observatory for almost 5 years now since January 2016. 

Have you reached out to our customer service before April 2020?  I don't think you have sent me a personal email, please correct me if I am wrong.

We will do our best to figure out what is going on with your computer system.  I am sure others will respond also to your call for help.

Re: About buying EXOS 2GT #EXOS2

Timothy Myers
 

Vijay,

I didn't see a response to your question about the older Bressler EXOS2-GT and the ES branded EXOS2-GT with PMC8.

I had similar questions I posed to Jerry before buying mine this past January. The older style mount (Jerry will correct me if I get this wrong) used bushings, not bearings, and if I remember correctly used DC motors. The newer ES Branded mount has been redesigned with bearings all around and uses stepper motors. I had read some discouraging comments about the older style mounts and most everyone, including me that has the newer EXOS2-GT with PMC8 is very happy with their choice. Hope that answers your question.

First light newbie.
Both images are
Bortle 5
100 x 20s lights
20 darks
20 bias
20 flats (which I think are messed up, hard to do with that zoom lens that won't lock focal length)

I think I was heavy handed processing both images.  Not great but not bad for a first time, I'm really happy with it.

Re: Windows 10 will not connect to my PMC-8 1856

Ian

Glad you are up and running.  You will find the Es pmc8 based mounts provide great value and are quite capable.  Take a look at the photo share posts on the mounts forum.  Many getting great shots, with a wide range of skills and capabilities.  

The mounts provide a nicely open architecture... by employing ASCOM applications, the mount provides the precision movement needed to make things simple.   

These mounts do have design trade offs which in some ways accounts for value level pricing.  But these trades are overcome largely by a bit of extra user care in setup and largely free software on the ascom side.   For example one wants to learn how to achieve polar alignment, employ guiding and get plate solving, the latter two being in someway the most important.


I cut my teeth with a Meade LX200GPS 10”, which I remain in awe of.  But for a small fraction of that price, my astrophotography experience with my exos 2 and Es 127 apo is so much better.  But to be fair the Es setup is the one I have spent the most effort with.

As I said the forum has many users, and quite a few folks who will answer your questions.  They are an enthusiastic and helpful lot.

Regards
Wes

Re: A New Subgroup Soon

Jerry Hubbell - Explore Scientific VP Engineering
 

I wanted to make sure everyone was aware of how to take advantage of the new PMC-Eight Application Subgroup, so here is what I posted on the Subgroup front page:
https://espmc-eight.groups.io/g/PMC-EightApplication

Welcome to the PMC-Eight Application Subgroup.

Unlike the other subgroups that are restricted by Terms of Service Rule Number 8 (https://espmc-eight.groups.io/g/MAIN/message/3224to discuss matters directly related to the PMC-Eight: 

The PMC-Eight Application subgroup is for discussions about other third-party applications that make use of the PMC-Eight and make up your entire Astronomical Imaging System (AIS), and IS NOT restricted to discussions directly or indirectly related to the PMC-Eight system.  

Here is the new addition to Rule Number 8:

The PMC-Eight Application Subgroup is available to members to discuss all manner of third-party equipment, software, and other materials needed for our customers to have the best experience using the PMC-Eight system with these third-party products. The discussion SHALL NOT BE LIMITED TO describing the how and why of the setup, configuration, and any other requirements needed to properly get the third-party product to work effectively with the PMC-Eight system.
In the PMC-Eight Application Subgroup, the members are invited and encouraged to discuss the integration of all the various third-party tools as necessary to get the best performance and experience using these products.

The only restriction is that members are not to either bash, or promote any specific manufacturer or product over any other manufacturer or product.  All that is required to keep from having a message or thread locked or deleted is to just state the facts about any circumstance or feature of the product and how you have configured or set it up.

These discussions do not need to be connected to the PMC-Eight directly or indirectly, rather this is a subgroup for all PMC-Eight owners and users to exchange ideas and information concerning how to setup and use all the various applications we employ. 

This is where users of the PMC-Eight can post relevant information about how various third-party applications can be used to get the most from PMC-Eight products.
