I recently got my Stellarmate and set up my equipment. Most things work, but I have some problems.
I have a Skywatcher AZ-EQ6 mount connected with EQdir.
The scope is set up at parking positition pointing at NCP.
When I unpark and ask the mount to slew to a star, it slews to a position 45 degrees further to the west.
I have double and triple checked that my observatory coordinates are correct, and that time zone and dst is set correctly.
My quick fix is to define a dummy location 45 degrees west of my actual location. This works, but it looks a bit stupid...

Any ideas what can be wrong?


I'm running Kstars/Ekos on Windows 10 laptop. Indi-server in Stellarmate.
