Lunar Tracking Rate on EXOS2 and iPad - #EXOS2 #iPadOS

Hi Jerry, Scott and Team,

I'm using an EXOS2-GT with PMC-Eight and an ES152ED. I'm doing sketching of the moon and need to know if there is an easy way to switch to Lunar Tracking on the Explore Stars app on iPad? I've checked settings, but no luck. 

Thanks,
Andrew

I got the answer from Jerry to this question. The setting is in the PMC-Eight Programmers reference manual. 

Go to "Settings" in the Explore Stars App on iPad. Then change the "Tracking Speed" (type in the new number).

Sidereal: 48
Solar 47.88
Lunar: 46.24

Thanks - Andrew

Remember this is for the EXOS2 and IEXOS-100

Sidereal: 48
Solar 47.88
Lunar: 46.24

The Losmandy G11 has a different setting (refer to the programmers reference manual)

Here is the reply I got from Jerry:

Under the settings you can set the tracking rate from 48.00 to the different values listed in the PMC-Eight Programmer’s Reference.  Here is the table (attached):
