What's wrong with Orion? was created by maxthebuilder

A month ago I was shooting the Orion Nebula and didn't notice anything wrong. That was wide field (270 mm).
I just got an AT72EDII/ASI1600MC (430 mm) and was playing with this set up. Last week and yesterday (with updated KStars/Ekos) strange things happened around the Orion.
If I Capture/Solve/Slew to Betelgeuse or Rigel or any other star they would be right in the center of FOV.
If I Capture/Solve/Slew to some feature inside of the Orion (say, Na'ir al Saif), Ekos solves successfully but Na'ir al Saif is about 1/3 of the frame off center.
Really strange.

Sorry I don't have any pictures to prove this. Maybe next time I'll get some (weather turned bad again).
