Using the most recent version of KStars.

Scope : SkyWatcher Quattro 300p
Mount : Celestron CGX-L
Camera : Sony A7R4
Polar Alignment : QHY PoleMaster (this works flawlessly)

The solver works reliably but the mount does not seem to make the correct movements to sync onto the target.

Last night I tried to have it sync to Polaris and it never even got close and the movement choices were not logical in my opinion.

Needless to say being able to plate solve and slew to target is essential.

Try to discard any mount/pointing model you might have stored. And don't sync to anything close to the pole, this is a singular point, and slightest errors translate into massive deviations.
