When I set up my NEQ6 on a permanent pier , I used a G star to drift align. Much easier than looking through the eyepiece. You could use a sensitive webcam or planetary video imager instead of the G star. Another option is to place the camera at the polar scope and observe the asterism and reticule more easily , myastroshop used to sell an adapter for the G star to make this easier. Alas I have sold mine and the G star. Will have to use my guide camera next time!
