Quote:I have the same issue with my EQ6 mount. This can have a number of causes, including:1. Tripod not level before starting alignment.2. Cone error in the scope attachment to the mount.3. Errors in the home position of the scope.4. Errors in the location and time settings.5. Polar alignment errors.
