In conjunction with TheSkyX Serious Astronomer Edition or Professional Edition, the TPoint Add On for TheSkyX can be used with an ASCOM-interfaced mount. Be aware that the mount controller should not implement any internal modelling of the pointing characteristics when used with TPoint; if it has such a capability, it should be disabled.

But since you mentioned "EQ mod control", I'll point out this user-developed TheSkyX native (X2) plug-in to support Sky-Watcher mounts equipped with an EQDIR cable. If you have a SynScan controller (as opposed to the StarGO controller Avalon now utilize), and an EQDirect cable interface, then I think this same plug-in should work for you. That would remove the added ASCOM layer from the mix (TheSkyX Professional Edition could host the mount to ASCOM clients, if desired). This also means you wouldn't be restricted to Windows, as this X2 plug-in is also available for macOS, Linux and Raspbian.
