I increased the calibration step to 0.8 seconds and the guiding worked perfectly. Sometimes, it can be difficult finding a guide star, only the brighter stars seem to show up, even when I set the exposure to 5 seconds. I am thinking this is probably due to the light polluted skies I live in, more than anything else.

I have my guidescope mounted on top of the C8 with a ScopeStuff Mounting Plate and 3 Point Rings. It is very solid.
