AP 400 GTO Mount Help

I have an AP 400 GTO which I have been aligning with the two star method. I continuosly re-sync on objects but have not been able to get better than about one degree pointing accuracy after moving say 5 or 6 Hours RA and 40 to 50 degrees DEC. Must the mount be dead level to achieve greater accuracy? Thanks in advance if any of you can help!
