1.6. Why is there a lateral offset between the signal curve and the point that indicates the lock point?

In auto-lock mode the oscilloscope works in x-y mode. When locking the scan shown was the last acquired before the lock was enabled.  The offset represents the real drift of the laser relative to the last scan. The effect should become more pronounced if the locking peak is near the edge of the scan window.
