Explore Scientific: The Explore Scientific and Losmandy G-11 with PMC-Eight Electronics is quite unique and special. Most of the serious amateur mounts on the market today offer single processors. The PMC-Eight electronics are extremely robust. They include a 2-Channel Multi-Processor Micro-controller with 8 CPUs that run independently and are completely deterministic in their behavior, thus the name PMC-Eight. Within this multi-processor system is a 64 Kbyte EEPROM Non-Volatile Memory bank used to store parameters; a Wireless Ethernet 10/100 with full IP function which permits operation from anywhere using a browser, ASCOM, or APP over the web or serial port; and Non-Volatile Memory used to store user selected parameters. The electronics also includes an Auto-Guide port (ST4 contact input) and features the only wireless ASCOM driver on the market. 
The Losmandy G-11 mount is moved by high-resolution .9° 400 count stepper motors with a micro stepping controller that makes the motor work at 12,800 steps per revolution with drive rates accurate to a few arc-seconds per day. Slewing rates are up to 4 degrees/sec. We include a direct connection from the stepper motors to the worm block via screw couplers. We also include the RA extension kit so you can slew past the meridian and disassemble the RA and Dec axis for easier transport.
