How can I control an EQ5 mount with a Skywatcher Motor Control box with my PC? Can I use the Skywatcher USB dongle to plug into the hand controller port of the box and plug a usb cable to my PC from the dongle attached to the box? What motor drives would I need to convert the mount to go-to? Thanks.
