On a PC, EQStarPRO works with any astronomical programs that support the ASCOM platform (http://www.ascom-standards.org/). For example, with the planetarium Stellarium, Cartes de Ciel, StarCalc and others. Among astrophotography and auto-guiding programs, EQStar supports MaximDL, Guidemaster, PHD2 and others. When you work with a PC, EQStarPRO can automatically find celestial objects and automatically track them (directing) during astrophotography with a high shutter speed. Also, when working with a PC, you need to install the ASCOM application EQMOD (http://eq-mod.sourceforge.net/).
EQStarPRO also supports working with the INDI astronomical platform, which was created for OS Linux. https://indilib.org/devices/mounts/eqmod.html
Controlling the telescope using mobile devices allows you to automatically find celestial objects. In the planetarium program on a mobile device, either Celestron or SynScan should be selected as a telescope control, as well as a mount - a German equatorial mount. The following software for mobile devices running EQStarPRO include SkySafari, Orion StarSeek, DSOPlaner, and others.
EQStarPRO communicates with a PC via USB or WiFi, and with a mobile device via WiFi.
The variety of platforms, drivers, and applications that EQStarPRO can run on makes it possible to create particularly user-friendly control conditions depending on the tasks.
For example, an astrophotographer typically uses a laptop or PC to search for, aim and direct an object during a long exposure. These features are mainly programs running under Windows. But for a lover of visual astronomy, it is much more convenient to control the mount using a compact mobile device, smartphone or tablet, rather than using a PC or laptop.
EQStarPRO comes with a universal joystick for manual control, which allows you to autonomously control mounting without a computer, smartphone or tablet.
