I run my AstroEQ connected via USB to a Raspberry Pi 3B+ running Astroberry Server (Ubuntu Mate Linux with KStars and noVNC preinstalled).  Both devices are mounted on the telescope and I can connect to and control all my equipment from any device with a web browser over WiFi.

I also wired up a couple voltage regulators to run the Raspberry Pi and camera off of the same deep cycle battery as the AstroEQ; the only cable dangling from the telescope is to the battery which sits directly below the tripod, nothing to trip over!!!
