Currently I use HEQ5-Pro mount.

While the comet is not moving the same direction/speed as the apparent motion of the stars, it's close enough that for imaging purposes, just using normal sidereal tracking is fine. It would only be a problem if you're going to image it for several hours (which isn't likely).
If instead of "tracking" you mean "finding" it...
It will tell you the RA/DEC coordinates of the comet at any time. You can enter your location data if you want to -- but that's not necessary to get RA/DEC coordinates (which are the same anywhere). Doing so *will* tell you when it rises above your local horizon, etc.
Get the coordinates. Type them into the place to GOTO specific RA/DEC coordinates. Have your mount GOTO those coordinates. Done.
For the ASIAIR, enter the coordinates Target: RA() and DEC() boxes below, then hit GOTO.
