That is interesting, so you suggest rather than plate solving at the park position, I should go to M31 and plate solve there. But why does the mount swing to the left instead of the right, would the error be that great?
As it is raining now, I'll set it up in the house. I'll put it in the park position and tell it to slew to M31 and see if it goes the right way.
