Thanks to anyone that can help
I had the same problem but with the NexImage 5. Saturn was centered with the 25mm eyepiece and just off centre with a 9mm. I put a 2x Barlow with the camera and I could not find it at all on the computer. I cheated a bit by moving my OTA around a bit (because of the type of scope it doesn't stay 100% solid) and found it.

What I would try and do next time is when aligning your telescope use your low power eyepiece (25-20mm) as usual but before finishing take that eyepiece out, put the camera (with the Barlow or whatever you are using) in and then centre Saturn.
