The EQMOD Project

EQMOD is a suite of open source applications to allow your PC to communicate directly with your mount as an alternative to your hand controller. Here is a link to the EQMOD Project.

Replacing the hand control with a direct link to your PC opens the door to automated sequences, plate solving, remote control from Stellarium etc.
