Polar align and eqmod

On the syncscan handset which i no longer use i recall you can move the mount in RA only.

Currently i release the clutch when using the polar align tool but if moved via eqmod i could return to the precise home position plus could test alignment from the laptop.

Anyone doing this? Not tried but do not recall a RA only option in eqmod unless the speed is set to zero for dec and then the east / west buttons will do it.

I use the NEQ6 and EQMod....
You can fast slew within EQMod - set speed to x8 and only use the RA buttons.
