Park is a bit off was created by maxthebuilder

Hello,
Using the latest nightly build on RPI.
I go to INDI control panel - mount site management.
Do purge, default, write. It sets ALT to the correct 37° 22' 38" but DEC is a bit off at 89° 58' 46".
Is this a bug or my fault somewhere? It used to work right...
Thanks!

Move it to 90 and right click on sky map, select mount and then “set as park” or go to INdI driver and select “write data” which is the old method.. :)

Sure I could do it like that. And I did.
But purge, default, write used to reset it exactly to 90° 00' 00" and 37° 22' 36".
Still does in a way.

So it was a bit off. I restarted the system - all of a sudden the park position was exactly right!
I did some slewing/aligning/syncing/polaraligning. Went back to Park - it was again just a bit off (about 1 degree in both axes).

Restarted the system again - the park was almost perfect - 89° 59' 59", 37° 22' 36"
That was on RPI.
Fired up the windows client - park was exactly right there.

I think it's a minor bug...

Mine is normally about 89. Something..... I think that is normal, as even when I park directly on Polaris, when I re start it’s slightly off Polaris....I thought that was normal... maybe @knro can advise on this...
