The Explore Scientific G-11 Upgrade Kit allows the owner of a Losmandy G-11 to upgrade to the ExploreScientific/Losmandy G-11 with PMC-Eight GoTo System, thus allowing the G-11 to be controlled by any ASCOM compatible software. This upgrade can be applied to any Losmandy G-11, be it an older or current model regardless of whether it has the Gemini system - - INCLUDING non-tracking, non-motorized versions.  

To learn more about the features of the upgraded G-11 see the product description of the Explore Scientific/Losmandy G-11 with PMC-Eight GoTo System. 

Note that prior to install the PMC-Eight on your G11 some slight mechanical changes are necessary which can be done at almost every machine shop. Please read the installation guide to get more information. Modification and installation is always up to a consumer. 

The hardware components included in this upgrade include motor housings, two flex couplers for direct connection to the worm blocks, two stepper motors, the Losmandy RA Extension (the 0.6" saddle plate extension is not necessary with our setup), a PMC-Eight controller, a PMC-Eight mounting adapter, two durable serial cables, an AC adapter, and Explore Scientific™s free ExploreStars software. 

See the Software Link to download and learn more about then PMC-Eight, ExploreStars App and the ASCOM driver. A Losmandy G-11 that has been upgraded with the Explore Scientific G-11 Upgrade Kit can be controlled by any ASCOM compatible software or by ExploreStars, which is provided by Explore Scientific at no charge. Regardless of which software is used, communication with the PMC-Eight can be either hardwired or wireless. Moreover, due to Explore Scientific’s open-architecture approach to the PMC-Eight, tech savvy users can develop their own controlling software and expand the role of the PMC-Eight to fulfill their individual needs.

We also include the Losmandy G11 RA Extension Kit so you can slew past the meridian and disassemble the RA and Dec axis for easier transport.
