The Equatorial view is not intended to show the actual sky orientation, the Alt/Az view is here for this usage.
It rater use a constant orientation with North up, the same as used by a printed atlas, or the view with an equatorial mounted telescope.

In this last case you can use the rotation/mirror buttons or the menu Chart/Transformation to adjust the view for the telescope optical system and camera rotation.
