It's a mount with 2kg limit as stated in instruction PDF. Barely any good scope at this weight range beside 80mm shorttube refractor and 90mm mak.

There used to be a cable or wireless bluetooth module of some sort DIY by enthusiasts in south america but they stopped producing it for international sale. Leaving behind some youtube videos and defunct website.
It was for providing goto control over computer/laptop instead of paying $200+ for the handset.
