Sequence below
Example stars ( Atria and Hadar )
Star alignment stars choose Atria (1st Star) and Hadar ( 2nd Star )
Polar alignment choose Star Atria ( closer to meridian)

Do Star Alignment > alignment successful > error shown
Select Polar Alignment > iteration process
Do Star Alignment > alignment successful > error shown ( Error should be reduced)
Select Polar Alignment > iteration process
Do Star Alignment > alignment successful > error shown ( Error should be smaller again )

And so on ..............

As soon as you adjust the Alt and Az bolts in the Polar alignment iteration process , your Star alignment has been affected by this mechanical change in the mounts orientation. Thatís why you have to do a Star alignment again

Hope the above makes sense

Cheers
