An essential component in the setup is the freely available ASCOM software. You can obtain it at the ASCOM web site ( http://ascom-standards.org
The ASCOM driver software provides a mechanism for standardizing the interface between many of the pieces of hardware and software typically used in your observatory.
Although it includes a component known as POTH (Plain Old Telescope Hub) that allows several devices to interface with the telescope at the same time current releases of the EQMOD driver do not require the use of POTH.
