How do I use the PMC-Eight via the Wireless and Wired Connection?


The ExploreStars app only works wirelessly. The PMC-Eight ASCOM Driver can be used either wired or wirelessly.  The ExploreStars application is designed to be used as the primary hand controller for the PMC-Eight system. You cannot connect and run the ExploreStars application via the serial/wired communications channel in the PMC-Eight.

If you want to connect the computer via a serial cable of the following types:

Mount                       Cable Type

G11/EXOS2              USB to Male DB9 Serial adapter cable (FTDI chipset)

iEXOS 100                USB Type A to mini-USB Type B

You would need to use the ASCOM driver with an appropriate ASCOM Client program.
