Nexstar 11 GPS

We have an old Nexstar 11 GPS scope, but the controller has vanished. Pretty much a big paperweight without it.

Is there a way to control the scope from a PC? I see RS-232 DB-9 to RJ-11 cables out there, and there are USB to DB-9 converters out there, but is there Windows software available that could drive the telescope?

Thanks in advance

You might want to see if you can buy a new or used controller or look here for options
