A screenshot of my first guide log is below. It looks like the RA is pretty smooth, but I'm puzzled by the DEC spikes. I was guiding on the same target for the full time, so I'd think the DEC drive was just trying to track guide star movement.

Looks like backlash to me or a cable dragging on the ground.
