kcormier When I used to go to function to any object
Is that object within about 30 degrees of the poles? Only plate solving for polar alignment use the asterisms for polar regions. Normal plate solve will only use the database of asterisms within 60 degrees of the celestial equator.
If that is not it, try manually plate solving outside a GOTO, and check for optimal exposure times for the region of the sky. It could be starved of asterisms (too short exposures), or be so full of stars as to confuse the plate solver.
