Is there a problem with Kstars/EKOS/INDI and the CEM70EC or is it me

I posted this issue a couple of months ago but I thought I would start fresh. I have been having a problem where a slew to the target arrives at the wrong location as indicated my the CEM70. That is the mount target is not on top of the Kstars target. Yesterday I did a search for M33 and centered and tracked it by double clicking M33 in the search results. I then right click and select "iOptron CEM70" > goto. The coordinates of M33 in Kstars shows RA 1h 35m 4.5s 30deg 46m 25.25s

The log file shows:

Why didn't the CEM70 get commanded to the coordinates shown in the Observation Planner? Did I do something wrong?

I sent additional goto command and the CEM70 just wanders around M33 but will not go there.

Thanks

Please double check you're using the right goto command. There's one to go to the highlighted object but there's also one to go to the cursor position, which I'm assuming is what you selected.

Thanks Fabio. That very well might be the case. I have been right clicking and selecting goto under the iOptron CEM70. Where is the goto for the target Kstars has centered? I assigned a shortcut to the right command.

The other think is that I have seen this problem when I am running the scheduler and I didn't click anything.
