Pointing problems with Starry Night and Servocat

I'm pretty sure this is user error and not a program problem but I need some guidance. I have a Servocat/Argo Navis controlled telescope. When I use the Servocat goto function to get to an object, the object shows up correctly in the center of the field.

However, when I try to use the "Planetarium" feature on the Servocat/Argo Navis system, it connects fine and slews close to the object but it is consistently off center. I can use the nudge to get it back into the field but was wondering if anyone had a more permanent solution. Trying to figure out where the source of the error is. The Starry Night display shows the pointing as spot on. 

The latitude and longitude are set to the same values in both systems.
