Slews are off after alignment?

If that's not the problem, did you train the drives recently? Worth a try.

When my CPC misses goto's after aligning: I "Calibrate Goto" before turning the power off, power down, power up, then manually point the scope to the first alignment star (loose clutches), then throughly tighten the clutches (scary tight, unfortunately), power up and align. Always solved the problem.
While I can't be sure, the above process SEEMS to have yielded better accuracy than skipping the "Calibrate Goto" step.

I haven't had much luck with using 'align' and 'replace' under conditions of clutch slip (or whatever is the culprit). It's possible there's a way to get to the full align menu of which I'm unaware-- particularly with Nexremote with which I'm unfamiliar.
I just do what I do because it always works, so far, anyway, when slews get off after alignment.
Be sure to share any solution and/or shortcuts you find.

The routine stores information in the HC (there is a small non volatile storage area ... that's where your location, DST and other settings are also stored) so powering off doesn't remove it.
