Pre-set lens to infinity for night shooting - what am I doing wrong?

I tried to pre-set my lens to infinity at 200 mm in manual using the cloud at 1 o'clock. Got the focus peak. But when I pointed at 10 o'clock cloud, I did not get the focus peak indication. I have to adjust the manual focus to get the focus peak for the cloud at 10 o'clock.

Why? I thought the first infinity I got should be useable for the cloud at 10 o'clock though the 2 cloud distances were not the same. Infinity is infinity, right? Or is there an infinity 1 and infinity 2? Ha.
