I am finding a discrepancy between KStars and Ekos re: the RA/Dec of satellites. KStars will show me the satellites in the sky, but if I try to slew my Paramount ME (through TheSkyX) to a satellite, Ekos gives me a warning that the satellite is below the horizon. In the Mount Control box, searching on the satellite, then clicking on "Details..." uncovers the fact that Ekos seems to think the position of the satellite is at 00h 00m 00.00 RA and 0 deg 00' 00.00 DE (J2000). I have run "update TLEs" which seems to be successful (i.e. KStars reports satellite positions that seem to be reasonably correct when compared to Heavens Above).
I'm using KStars 2.9.5 and the most recent version of indiserver v.1.7.2. The log file also reports an attempt to slew to 0 RA 0 Dec as well.

Thoughts? Thanks!
