Cable needed from AZ-EQ6 to Laptop?

Hi, Just a basic question i am sure,
I did a bit of research but kind of came up with heaps of different answers, so was hoping someone here might be able to please point me in the right direction.

I have the newer version of the Skywatcher AZ-EQ6 mount.
It has the USB connection on the mount.
The manual says the panel interface components are:
Power DC 12V
USB USB-to-serial connection for controlling mount
Hand controller RJ-45 8-pins
Auto Guide RJ-12 6 pins
Snap port for DLSR Camera

So, basically i am just trying to find out what cable i need to connect the mount to my Laptop.

I am moving into the ASCOM software, lots of learning, but getting there i think.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
