Are you "zoomed" way in?? Try hitting the "-" (minus) key two to the left of the backspace key. It'll zoom your view out. Hope that helps.

Francois's idea is my only other one. I did have that same problem when I was not in real-time though. If I move sim time to 4x or so then it is off for some reason.

The spot view is linked to the ref datum point in the model file. With 2K2 you may be able to change that in the Weight and Balance section (ref_datum_point), but I don't know if that'll change the model ref (rotation) point. I know it does change the VC eye point.
