I'm new here and I've had some trouble getting stellarium and my mount to point to the same target. Everything is hooked up properly, balanced, correct coordinates etc. I'm using the the HEQ5's polar scope to polar align and then I'll go to slew to any target in stellarium. The software thinks it on target but it's not even close in the OTA. I never had this problem until I switched from using the hand control to using an EQDir cable. I've tried correcting the misalignment by manually slewing to desired target and then using the Sync button in stellarium but it doesn't correct. My scope target on screen doesn't move to the target after sync. Would plate solving help? Maybe letting stellarium use the coordinates it wants instead of mine own? Should I use Carte du seul instead? I'm at a loss, please any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
