Good explanation Ron , I did my eq5 before , top tip never unscrew the grub screws to much the lens housing drops out  I learnt the hard way , haven’t tried doing the Eq6 yet though I should , mean to check scopes for cone error too .

I got used to my HEQ5 being spot on from new but I had to adjust the NEQ6 just a bit, job worth doing!!

I remember when i had my old AZEQ6 i replaced those awful grub screws with M3 thumbscrews.

It made calibration so much easier, simple even.
