Newest effort.  Still struggling with DEC excursions of 3-4 ArcSec every 6 minutes or so. Dither was off.  Alternates north and south.  So I figure DEC Backlash.  A review of PHD-2 revealed that backlash compensation was disabled.  Enabled backlash compensation and this seemed to fix the North/South periodic excursions.  I think Jerry have mentioned this before.
I was able to catch 20 lights of IRIS Nebula (NGC-7023) and 5 of Andromeda (M31).
