I am trying to use Sharpcap to polar align my SW EQM35 mount. I rotate the mount 90deg in RA and get the PA error to excellent, but then I rotate the mount 90deg back to the home position and the PA error now says poor. I'm assuming that it should stay at excellent, right?
Also, I noticed when I look through the polar scope on the mount after doing the polar alignment in Sharpcap, the position of Polaris is below the clock circle by a good amount. Should Polaris be close to the position on the clock face (according to the PA app on my phone) after polar aligning in Sharpcap?
I'm wondering if there are issues with the mount I have to fix like cone error or something?
