Accessories for a Celestron Super C8 Plus?

My first large scope, and it's incomplete.  I need a power cord for the Byers drive unit, and any suggestions for a motor controller (any Arduino hacks out there?).

I have plenty of lenses (the Celestron 6 lens/8 filter kit), the mirrors look very good, and mount rotates smoothly by hand.

I hope to do some astrophotography with my Nikon D3100 mounted on the scope.

Any manuals, schematics, places for power cords, electronics hacks to control the motor speed, etc., would be greatly appreciated!
