Ideally suited for remote control using the EAGLE, the EQMOD USB cable connects to the Sky-Watcher hand pad port on one end, and to your computer's USB port on the other end. This gives users access to many more advanced features such as automatic execution of mosaics and N stars alignment not available with the standard hand pad.

The cable is 2 meters (6.5 ft) in length and included CD-ROM software that is compatible with Windows (32 and 64 bit). Its compatibility starts with Windows XP and extends to planetarium software like Cartes du Ciel.
