I meet a new problem. I must park my setup with tube located horizontally on est side and the counterweight bar horizontal too pointing western side.
When I move the mount to this position and want to set the parking position, Ekos return that the object is below horizon. My setup is on a fix pier since 4 months now. I didn't have the problem before last update. Do I make some mistake or is there something that has changed ?

Hi Patrick,
If you use a handbox in your setup I think that your preferred parking position is listed as one of the selectable positions in the handbox.
Try using the handbox to set this position while you are connected to ekos then set this position as "current" in the indi mount tab site management tab and save the position in site management.
Save the config in the mount options tab then close everything down then reboot and see if the position is remembered.
When setting up for any future sessions (make sure that the mount is in this position before powering up.

Hopefully that should work
