I am experiencing the same thing even with my AltAz. I have the NexStar+ HC connected to my NexStar 6SE and everything works fine through the HC and continues tracking fine after manually slewing via the HC. But if I use INDI to manually slew the mount tracking does not resume unless I manually slew again on HC or toggle tracking off/on. Was going to try to hack Celestron GPS driver.

I am having some trouble with my mount when manually slewing in KStars/Joystick. I have a NexStar 6SE with the NexStar+ HC (running the latest firmware on the HC and Motor Controller) connected to a Raspberry Pi 3B running Astroberry. When I start up KStars/Ekos and have everything configured the mount works perfectly when slewing to targets and the mount moves in the expected directions. However when I manually slew in KStars using the Telescope Mount Control Panel or via a joystick the motors run opposite (IE when I press the Up arrow the telescope mount pitches down, when I press the left arrow it moves right). I found in KStars on the Telescope Control Panel where I can reverse each set of motors to fix that, but that doesn't seem to have any effect on the Joystick.

When using the Joystick and looking at the Indi Control Panel in KStars for my mount using the Celestron GPS driver when I press the buttons it correctly show North when up is pressed and West when the left button is pressed but the motors run opposite. Is there something I need to setup in the Joystick or configure in the driver to reverse the motors through INDI?
