Explore Scientific iEXOS-100 PMC-Eight GoTo Tracker System - Supernova Bundle

SUPERNOVA BUNDLE: For a limited time only, this iEXOS-100-2 Bundle Package includes a FREE Explore Scientific USB Power Bank and a FREE Explore Scientific iEXOS-100 AZ Adapter. That's a $249.98 USD Value - FREE.

The iEXOS-100-2 PMC-Eight Equatorial Tracker System is a complete astronomical computerized Wifi or Wired GOTO Equatorial Tracker with integrated PMC-Eight electronics suitable for attaching Small Telescopes or DSLR Cameras attached to the Explore Scientific DSLR Camera Dovetail Assembly.

Use with the free ExploreStars App for Tablets (Windows, Android, Amazon and Apple), or with the free ASCOM Standards Compliant PMC-Eight ASCOM driver and the ASCOM POTH Client from Explore Scientific (either wired or wireless) to work with virtually any sky software that supports ASCOM. Tablet or computer must be purchased separately.

The iEXOS-100-2 utilizes a proven German equatorial mount design and Explore Scientific’s revolutionary PMC-Eight™ Precision Motion Control system to flawlessly navigate the night sky and track objects as they journey across it. This combination provides superior observing and imaging performance without a prohibitive price tag.

GOTO systems play an important role in the world of amateur astronomy because they ensure users spend less time searching for particular objects and more time observing and imaging. The PMC-Eight with its versatile connections supported with free to download apps for Windows computers or Android and iOS tablets only (tablets must have a screen of at least 7 inches), or through the free to download ASCOM PMC-Eight driver and POTH Client to connect to your favorite ASCOM Compliant Astronomical Software, can allow you to control the telescope from a few feet away or by communicating computer-to-computer with an Internet connection from virtually anywhere in the world. 

One of the standout features of the iEXOS-100-2 system is its German equatorial design. When it comes to tracking the stars with a telescope, there is nothing that compares to a German Equatorial Mount (GEM) because it will precisely follow objects as they rise in the east and set in the west. For observers, a GEM makes it easy to keep your celestial target in your eyepiece. For imagers, it helps you avoid common astrophotography pitfalls like field rotation.

Before you can track an object, you need to find it, and that objective can be daunting when you’re faced with a vast expanse of inky black sky or a bright city sky. The iEXOS-100 puts a powerful GOTO system in your arsenal of astronomical tools that takes the frustration out of navigating the night sky. This integrated version of Explore Scientific’s PMC-Eight™ system transcends the industry standard single processor by utilizing an 8-core microcontroller with eight CPUs that operate independently of one another to focus on defined functions. This delegation of tasks among the processors results in a system that offers superior responsiveness, efficiency, reliability and astoundingly fast timing intervals for smooth image acquisition and accurate tracking.

Although it is internally complex, the GOTO system can be easily operated from your own Apple, Android or Windows tablet using the ExploreStars app, which has an intuitive nature that makes it simple and quick to align your telescope, navigate the stars and learn specifics about tens of thousands of celestial objects. This dynamic app is fueled by a database that is routinely updated to ensure it remains a relevant resource.

Our commitment to creating a streamlined GOTO mount is obvious in other design choices. The iEXOS-100-2 has smooth locking clutches that will let you quickly reposition your telescope from one side to the other and an altitude knob for smooth height adjustments. The mount base includes a small polar alignment tunnel that allows users to roughly align their observing setup with Polaris. It also has a simple bubble level that comes in handy when stabilizing your tripod. Other features include a bracket for holding the battery pack, which powers the PMC-Eight system through 8 C batteries (not included); two 1 kg counterweights for balancing; and glow-in-the-dark markers on certain points of the mount and tripod so you can stay oriented with your setup at night. The mount is designed to hold up to 19 lbs (scope, accessories, and counterweights added together).

The mount weighs 9.45 pounds (4.29 kg), while the lightweight Travel Tripod and accessory tray weighs 5.5 pounds (2.5 kg). The Travel Tripod, when collapsed is 27.25 inches (69.21 cm) tall.

Connect by wire, WiFi, or Bluetooth®* to navigate the night sky and track objects with this integrated GOTO system that pairs a proven German equatorial mount with our revolutionary PMC-Eight™ motion control system.

* NOTE: Bluetooth hardware included in the mount; Bluetooth-compatible firmware and application coming soon

Explore Scientific iEXOS-100 PMC-Eight mount

I recently purchased the Explore Scientific iEXOS-100 PMC-Eight mount. I’m completely new to this hobby of astrophotography and just simple viewing.

I got in touch with Matt from Red Carpet to discuss my queries and get some guidance for purchasing the right mount and telescope. He has been very helpful and patient with all my doubts and queries. The order shipment and delivery was spot on without any hassles. I’m very happy and satisfied with their overall service.

And coming on to the iexos-100 mount, I think it is a great mount for beginners with solid build quality. But I wish it came with an alt-az adapter and a power supply adapter just to get started. I’m still trying to get the hang of using it and setting up the necessary softwares on my laptop for it to function effectively. Setting it up is not super complex but can be a bit overwhelming for someone who is completely new to this hobby. As everyone says, it is a steep learning curve.

I haven’t been able to use the mount yet for any observations or photography as the weather here in Vancouver has not been very supportive. But I’m looking forward to use it soon.

Thank you again Matt and Red Carpet Telescopes!

An excellent first Equatorial Mount

I finally fulfilled a life-long dream when I purchased my first telescope last year but soon found out all the cool kids were into astrophotography. This EQ Mount is the foundation of my first ‘rig’ and I’ve had no substantial problems while getting to know the ins and outs of my new mount. My rig consists of a 60mm ED refractor attached to a Canon DSLR mounted on the IEXOS-100 and while I haven’t had many clear nights since i got it, the few nights I’ve had with it make me very excited for the future with my new hobby.

Great service at a better price

RRD Carpet Telescopes was recommended by one of my friends and I am delighted to share that they are very customer oriented and very knowledgeable. Shipping was very quick and I received the ordered item on time. They also gave me a 5% discount - no one else had that offer. Thank you
