orion intelliscope adaption

I am interested in using the orion intelliscope controller on a homemade dob.
Is it possible ?
The controller still has an interface to a computer. Do you know the protocol used in order
to interface to other planetary software or it is used only for software update pourposes.

Finnaly, what others DSC I may use for this project ?

My understanding is that the Intelliscope system does not use the standard type of encoders, rather quite a different system.

I believe if you do a search of Science.Astro.Amateur you will find some more info.
