It looks like it’s in equatorial mode. Does the problem go away if you switch to azimuthal mode by hitting the space bar?

Ah, OK. Thanks.
So what's on screen is not what's in the sky?
Cheers

What I see in your screenshot is a grey line with the numbers 0, 2, 4, etc below it. That's the celestial equator. All the way at the center top I see a short blue line. That's your local meridian. It stops where it hits the horizon which is just north of Capella. That star indeed is below the horizon in Alicante, Spain, around midnight this time of the year. So, a tiny bit of what's in the star map is visible from your location, though visible is quite stretching it since that part is very low over the north horizon.
