SkySafari has limited choices for initiating and unparking.
They are actually working to change that and will have other park and resume options soon.

Just saw this and agree that it’s probably your re-aligning or recal when you are in different parts of the sky. I noticed that even when I use APCC to initiate. When I would start another session and pick start from position 3, alignment was off. What I needed to pick was “last parked”. I could see from the marks on the axes that the park 3 position was off a little. Once I used last park, it worked perfectly.
Unfortunately, SkySafari has limited choices for initiating and unparking. You would need to reset your park 4 position each new session unless you didn’t re-align during the prior one. One thing you could try is to realign on a star near the park 4 position before you shut down. That would be low in the southern sky. That should at least get the next startup closer.

Great- good to understand what is probably causing this and that a solution is forthcoming.
