Heq5 tuning

Hi guys, I have been very hectic lately and have not had a chance to do much astronomy related things. I have returned from my honeymoon to a letter saying that we had to move out of our house. We had a week to move out which ment we had to really move on finding a new place. Now all that is over I have ended up at a place with an ample backyard (something that I didnt have before) I have set up my mount outside with the view of having a semi permenant setup. I thought that tonight I would try to improve my PE. I had never tryed PEC with my setup before and thought why not.

Attached are 2 PEC PREP runs one before and one after the PEC was applied to eqmod.

Post PEC shows an impressive 7.5 arc seconds peak to peak, something I never thought I would get out of my little Heq5.
