Make sure you enter the correct time into the handcontroller
Remember itís US. Month / Day / year
A few degrees out in PA is going to make your stars drift quickly depending on your altitude and azimuth
I attached an old school way but good way to align your tripod and mount toward true celestial south called the solar noon meridian method better than a compass with magnetic declination setting
Also attached the Synscan Polar alignment routine which works for me every time , gets to sub arc minute alignment
Make sure you balance your mount in both axis and set your home position correctly
Good luck
Cheers
