    Alex, you wrote:
    
    "If all your "arc errors" are on the  "low" side, this suggests that perhaps 
    index error was not determined
    accurately.
    
    Did you check the index error (using the same stars) immediately before or 
    after the distance observations?"
    

    Please read the first paragraph of the post again, your answer is in there.

    Good navigating
