Light pellets typically perform horrible in break barrel rifles due to their tendancy to fly around
Make sure you have a stiff, tight fitting pellet. Smaller soft pellets also will contribute to accuracy issues as they deform much and can let air escape from around the skirt when fired (called "blo by")
Without seeing the rifle, my guess would be that either the rings were not tight enough or the lens came loose from the shot. It is rare depending on the quality of the scope. If the lens itself moved, it will not be waterproof or fog proof because the seal on the lens is not tight. If its under warranty then it should be replaced, if not then be care full not to get it too wet. If you had a suction cup, you could try to reposition it straight again.
Some (not all) versions have an end stop - it it just reaching that? The scope will rotate only aboit 3 complete turns between the 2 ends.
The 'correct' starting position is as follows: Place scope on tripod or table with control panel at the West. Unlock the declination lock (horizontal slew). Rotate scope anticlockwise until it hits the end stop, Then roate it back clockwise until scope is pointing North (should be about 3/8 of a turn, as the end stop is at South West). Then lock the declination, Set the tube horizontal and continue with the alignment process.
Autostar always thinks you have set the position like that. If you haven't, it will work OK until it tries to rotate past the point it won't go, then chaos results!
zoom out to the minimum or mid of your scopes capabilities depending on the range you will be shooting from most frequently. then get ready to lay out some pellets. fire in groups of three. and walk tour adjustment knobs into your crosshairs. under your dial caps or mabey on the outsode you'll find L--> and up--> markings with arrows indicating how to turn it to make your adjustments tight. great hunting. but start on a windless day. lol not too common in WY
