The WikiSubmissions subgroup is those wishing to contribute items to the MAIN GROUP WIKI. The MAIN GROUP WIKI is a member resource developed for our PMC-Eight Customers and is going to be maintained by the PMC-Eight Forum Membership. This subgroup is being used to share inputs into the structure and ideas about how the WIKI should be structured. Also submissions of articles to the WIKI are moderated through this subgroup and articles approved will be placed in the MAIN FORUM WIKI. Once the first version of the WIKI articles are fairly complete, then the WIKI will be opened up for members to directly edit the articles. I want to get an initilal version of articles out there for people to update so that we can estabish the tone and expectations for what we expect the WIKI to look like.

The Explore Scientific PMC-Eight Forum is managed by Jerry Hubbell, Vice President of Engineering for Explore Scientific, LLC. This group is about the PMC-Eight Mount Control System and the open-source OpenGOTO Community.

The PMC-Eight Mount Control System is delivered on several of the Explore Scientific mounts including the Losmandy G11, the Explore Scientific EXOS 2, and the iEXOS 100 mount. The PMC-Eight is delivered with the OpenGOTO Community open source ExploreStars Application available on Windows, Android, and soon to be released on the Apple iOS system. We also have available for download the  ASCOM Standard compliant PMC-Eight ASCOM driver for use with third-party ASCOM client programs such as Maxim DL and Cartes du Ciel.
This is a public forum for our customers to discuss their experience with the PMC-Eight and the associated mount hardware.

You can get started by reading our knowledge base article Getting Started With Your New PMC-Eight Control System.
You can find more information at Explore Scientific USA and at the ExploreStars website.
