Polar alignment with ZWO ASI 385 MC / EQ6

I'm wondering to connect my EQ6 mount with ST4 cable attached to ASI385 camera.

In PHD it's perfect. It works when I specify "on camera" mount.

How does it works with "Polar Alignmnent" function?

What mount do I have to configure in Ekos?

Just select the camera and guide scope combination in the alignment tab. The PAA will drive the mount and EKOS will take the captures required for the process.
ST4 is only used for guide pulses. Alternatively you can ditch the ST4 cable and send the guide corrections through the mount driver (select driver instead of On Camera). That method is called pulse guiding, and is usually preferred over the old ST4 standard.
