OH A HUGE FACEPALM FOR ME

Going over everything again today I realised I transposed the RA and DEC cables



I spent 4 hours on it last night, frustrated. I could get it to move down a reticule line without the drive on in both axis but them tracking on it went diagonally. the importance of photos, I wentto look at some of my old setup dome images and something stood out to me - highlighting what an idiot I really am, I transposed the drive cables
