We measure the X-ray temperature and luminosity with ASCA of all but one cluster in the Einstein Extended Medium Sensitivity Survey EMSS high redshift z 0.3 sample. We compare these data to a complete sample of low redshift clusters that also has temperature measurements, thereby providing cosmological constraints. We incorporate many improvements over our previous work. We find an allowed band in the Omega {m0} - Omega {Lambda0} plane of different orientation to the band of constraints provided by the supernovae Ia Hubble diagram and the cosmic microwave background fluctuations. All three bands intersect at the same place: Omega {m0} ~ 0.3, Omega {Lambda0} ~ 0.7. We measure the quintessence equation of state parameter to be w = -0.42 pm 0.21 68% confidence for 1 interesting parameter, consistent with previously determined upper limits. We measure the normalization of the mass fluctuation power spectrum to be sigms 8 = 0.66 pm 0.16 68% confidence for 3 interesting parameters. Systematic errors are larger than the statistical errors only for sigma 8 with our sample, thus the errors for it depends on the details of the marginalization over the temperature - mass normalization.
