I recently refined the settings on my AVX mount, and found when performing the two star calibration the mount "thinks" Mizar is south of the celestial equator about the same distance above the horizon as it actually is, and it again thinks Albereo is north of the celestial equator. What did I do wrong? Dan.

In your hand controller menu, is Tracking set to EQ North instead of EQ South?  This would be under Menu > Tracking > Mode.

South EQ, changed to north and all is well. Appreciate the input.
