There are two things going on: configuration and control. The 'Using Nexus...' document should really be called 'Configuring Nexus...'. All off the shelf control programs typically have some planetarium functionality. SiTechExe has SkyView.
I'm still not clear how you're planning to control your mount, as in point at targets, using the Nexus. On Linux I suppose you can use KStars with a Nexus Indy driver or maybe Nexus has some mount operation program that's going to include a Park option, where the Nexus program effectively hides the SiTech interface from the user after its been configured.
