On a PC, controller EQStar works with any astronomical programs that support the. For example, with planetarium Stellarium, Cartes de Ciel, StarCalc and others. Among the programs for astrophotography and guiding, controller EQStar supports MaximDL, Guidemaster, PHDGuiding and others. When you work with a PC, the controller EQStar can automatically find sky objects and track them automatically (guiding) during the astro photography with long exposure.

In the planetarium program at the mobile device Celestron or SynScan should be chosen as a control of the telescope, as well as a mount German equatorial mount. The following programs for mobile devices work with controllers EQStar: SkySafari, Orion StarSeek, DSOPlaner and others.
Ontroller EQStar communicates with PC via cable from the standard kit and with the mobile device via Wi-Fi. Variety of platforms, drivers and applications on which EQStar controllers are able to work with gives an opportunity to create particularly comfortable conditions, depending on the tasks. For example, an astro photographer generally uses a laptop or PC to search, targeting and guiding the object during a long exposure. Such opportunities are mostly programs running under Windows. But for amateur visual astronomy it is much more convenient to control the mount with a compact mobile device, smartphone or tablet, rather than using a PC or laptop.
The controller EQStar is supplied with a universal joystick for manual control. It allows you to manage mount autonomously without a computer, smartphone or tablet.
