First time using EQMOD ,BYEOS and Synscan PA Routine

First time last night using EQMOD and BYEOS instead of my illuminated reticle eye piece for PA alignment and the Synscan PA routine
2 iterations and got down to 2 arc sec error
So much easier , took 10 minutes and no stiff neck !!

Apologies for a description error , I used the Synscan PA routine with the handcontroller together with BYEOS ( not EQMOD ) I extended the handcontroller cable with a cat5 cable and inline socket so it could reach my laptop 2 metres away from the mount
BYEOS provides much better centering accuracy than any eye piece could ever achieve
