Wrong Dome orientation


#1

Hi,

we are controling a Dome with SGP 2.5.1.14 (The dome is a Lesvedome-controlled system).
When pointing at targets in the north, the Dome azimuth calculation is wrong.
When slewing, atfer a few seconds, the dome is moved for about 15° in the wrong direction.

Here is an abstract from the log file

Thanks for helping.
