guiding problem, double stars but round

Stars are round but doubled. see 100% crop below
That's at 5 minutes, at 3 minutes the problem is not as bad however it's still not perfect. Given I have gone over 10 minutes without any issues in the past it's frustrating not being able to come close to it again. I've even pushed 15 minutes with round stars in the past same setup. I think I'll go back to the default PHD settings and start over playing with them unless I get a better suggestion.

It may be backlash as some have mentioned or just play in the mount. I noticed when setting up last night my tripod legs seemed loose but I didn't have a correct size wrench to tighten them with me. Even with the scope and Atlas EQ-G mount, counter weight (11lb) and camera, the whole assembly had "play" in it. I tried to touch it as little as possible.
