Rotating Newt OTA within Tube Rings

Hi Guys
What are the tricks to make rotating the newtonian OTA within the tube rings during an observing session an easy operation?
I seem to have so much difficulty rotating the OTA even with the tube clamps loosened.
Is there any method to make this a less frictionless manouvere?
Thanks Guys

EQ5 goto Mount in non goto mode

Hi guys

If I wanted to skip all the initial setups on the handset that you are required to do when you first power up the mount and just use in non goto mode , what is the procedure to do that ?
