Technical issue about the iOptron Cube

It's cloudy outside but the sun is strong enough to penetrate part of the cloud, so I pulled out my Cube for testing.

I found that if I put my cube in its "park position", when I ask it to slew to the Sun, the scope will go to the right side of the mount.

And since I'm trying to do indoor imaging through my south facing window, so if the mount can put the telescope on its left side, it should be far better for me. Is there any way that I can instruct the mount to point via the other side?

I've tried to slew the scope to the other side of the mount, but the software is "smart" enough to say that the scope is now pointing below the horizon...

Any idea or input would be highly appreciated.
