ES-iEXOS-100-02 at regular price, get a USB Power Bank to power it (ES-PBFL-01) and an iEXOS-100 azimuth adjuster adapter (ES100AZADJ-01) – FREE. A savings of $249.98!

 

The iEXOS-100 is an astronomical GOTO system that 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. Features include:

  • Integrated Explore Scientific PMC-Eight™ system that transcends the industry standard single processor by utilizing eight CPUs that operate independently of one another to focus on defined functions, which results in superior responsiveness, efficiency, reliability and astoundingly fast timing intervals.
  • iEXOS-100 Azimuth Adjuster Adapter
  • Explore Scientific USB Power Bank with Red LED Flashlight
  • Clutched dual-axis worm gears with quiet precision stepper motor belt drives
  • Intuitive ExploreStars app, which is available for Apple, Android and Windows tablets, that makes it simple to operate the GOTO system. Through it, users can quickly align their telescope, navigate the stars and learn specifics about tens of thousands of celestial objects
  • Clutched RA and Declination axes are smooth and allow for precise balancing which makes the process of repositioning your telescope efficient
  • Polar alignment sight hole through the RA axis and precise altitude control for fast alignment without polar scope.
  • Battery pack powering the PMC-Eight™ system uses 8 C batteries and is secured in a bracket on one of the tripod legs when in use
  • Two 1 kg counterweights included
  • Glow-in-the-dark markings on mount and tripod
CA Residents: Prop 65 WARNING(S)

 

 

The iEXOS-100 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 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 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 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.

iEXOS-100 Azimuth Adjuster Adapter

The Azimuth Adjuster Adapter is designed for use on the Twilight Medium Duty or Twilight Heavy Duty tripods

This adapter also works with the Light Duty tripod that comes with the iEXOS-100 tracking goto system, but requires modification of the tripod base. See the manual for details of the required modification.

This device allows iEXOS-100 users to make fine azimuth adjustments for precise polar alignment.  

Explore Scientific USB Power Bank with Red LED Flashlight 

With the new Explore Scientific USB Power Bank with Red LED Flashlight, you will have power to spare for your telescope mount, smart devices, cameras or other equipment in the field. This reliable rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery has a capacity of 8300 mAh with an output of 12v that connects to a supplied power cord with spring-loaded power plugs with 5.5mm x 2.5mm to 5.5mm x 2.1mm connectors. The 5v output from the USB port can power your devices with a standard user-supplied USB cable. The Explore Scientific USB Power Bank with Red LED Flashlight has an operating range of a teeth chattering -4 degrees to a blazing 140 degrees Fahrenheit!

The soft deep red glow from the LEDs lets you see under dark starlit skies without ruining your night vision as you make adjustments to your equipment, read star charts, locate that small telescope part you dropped in the grass, or find that steamy hot cup of coffee before you knock it over and spill it in your lap.

Slightly smaller than a building brick and weighing only 1.4 pounds, the rugged rubber covering protects the battery from minor impacts and seals the red LED flashlight on/off switch from dirt and moisture. The five level indicator shows power availability. The unit is turned on or off with a toggle switch. A convenient 2-point attachment point allows you to hang the battery near your equipment.

Aside from use on the star party field, the Explore Scientific USB Power Bank with Red LED Flashlight could be the best portable Lithium-Ion battery pack for off-grid camping. And in the case of power outages, natural disasters, or invasions from extraterrestrials— is perhaps the best portable emergency power to keep in your car, home, or office.

How long can it power the Explore Scientific PMC-Eight GOTO system? Our field tests with the iEXOS 100 and EXOS 2, with a draw of 0.5 amps (0.6 amps when slewing) is about 8 hours of running time. For the Explore Scientific/ Losmandy G11 which draws about 50 percent more, we expect that it will have a running time of about  5 hours. Your time would be reduced if you are using the USB port to charge a phone or other device, or if you are using the flashlight.

Typical full charge time is 5 to 6 hours from a full discharge. Comes complete with 110v - 220v AC to DC wall plug charger and power cord with spring-loaded power plugs.
