I was using this feature last night in the northern hemisphere and doing a polar alignment away from the pole. I found the correction vectors recommended wherein the wrong direction. Also adjusting say Altitude the star never travelled along the yellow line or anywhere near it. So what I ended up doing was looking at the length of each vector and then moving the star that length for the corresponding direction.
I am using a Celestron AVX mount connected via HC and a 6 " RC scope with an AA26C camera. KSTARS is 3.5.2 stable build.
Is there something I need to check or configure to correct this performance?

Thanks
Lenny
