Sky Safari and Nexus DSC positions don't match?

Hi folks!

I am experiencing an offset error between Sky Safari 6 Pro on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablet and the Nexus DSC digital setting circles.

The Sky Safari bullseye is consistently offset about 0.3° in both RA and DEC from the Nexus DSC position.

That is, if I center an object using Sky Safari, its position will be off about 0.3° in both RA and DEC in the Nexus DSC.

I have synchronized the time and epoch settings between Sky Safari and the Nexus DSC.

What else could be causing this offset error?

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

    P.S. The Nexus DSC is well-aligned to the sky. I sample 10-15 stars using MPoint and an illuminated reticle crosshair eyepiece.

    I believe this error was internal to Nexus DSC.
