I've got the dome rotating well and the shutter opening and closing well. I ran "measure all" in Beaver setup. I'm using Ascom Device Hub. I checked "slaved to telescope." The shutter follows the telescope, but it is 180 degrees opposite the scope. I spent a lot of time in the freezing cold trying to fix this, but I could not, I'm embarrassed to say. The solution is probably simple, but it eludes me. If someone could help, I would really appreciate it.

I got this sorted out. It just was not intuitive for me.
I don't use Ascom, but instead I use Indilib. However, I believe the options and behavior are similar. I also had similar issues before I began routinely re-finding home for every power up. It seemed that shutdown conditions do not always preserve the home setting, perhaps due to mechanical hysteresis, perhaps due to electronic issues. Sometimes on startup it would rotate to an arbitrary azimuth independent of the scope position. But since I've began re-homing every time, this has not recurred (fingers crossed!).
