Tempting fate ill admit however.

Today I found my issue with my scope and dome sync, the driver offsets are a crossover of M and mm for sections, I had my Dome radiuset to 110M thinking it was 110cm it needed to be 1.1m and my rotational axis on the mount to the center of the OTA offset 34 where it should of been 340mm

So the test..

All day I have been slewing around with the dome shut checking to see if the OTA was pointing to the middle of the shutter, and it was, it all tracked for hours no problems, slew to another target and the same all good.

So then..........

Tonight there was a clear spot so I decided to test it.

Slew the scope to M45 dome closed and from the house, open the dome and solve.
