Differences in main scope / guide scope polar alignment

I've been using kstars and ekos during lasts months, and I'm in love with it. I'm always do the polar alignment routine with the main optical tube (c8 with 6.3 focal reducer), but last night I tried with the guidescope , and there's significative differences... With the main scope ekos gives me a polar error of 2' 13"
and with the guide scope an error of 9' 11"...
OTA and guide scope are properly aligned...
why this big difference?

one doubt: on the main scope I'm not taking pictures at full resolution, I'm taking pictures at 2592x1728. These are the values that I've write in the indi control panel, both for "Image settings" and "image info":
If I put 5184 x 3456 on the "Image Info -> CCD Information" the images are cropped (I have selected 2592x1728 on the camera), is this ok?
thanks for your response
