If your scope still thinks it's in Irvine, CA (Meade factory), it will throw your calculations off--be sure you've set your location properly. Be sure you have the scope set for Astronomical targets rather than Terrestrial--sometimes it comes from the factory set for Terrestrial. Have you gone through the Train Drives procedure yet? It increases tracking and Go To accuracy. If none of the above, let us know, and I'll try to come up with other ideas.
