Hello; 

 

I seem to be having problems with PHD2 and my Mount that haven't really started to be annoying until I started doing long exposures (over 5 minutes). I'm using SharpCap to finetune my polar alignment, and making sure the mount is properly balanced, but this is starting to get on my nerves. I ttried adjusting RA Agr and DEC Agr, and ran the Guiding Assistant, not much help. 

 

Thank you for your help!

First thing I think I notice is that your guide star is saturated. Did you use autoselect for the star selection? I also cant see any of the numbers on your screen so its very hard to see the issue. You also do not give any details of your equipment such as guide scope or guide camera.
