Runaway Tracking

Hi All,
Don't know if anyone can shine any light on this problem I have with my EQ6 mount using PHD2 and EQMod.

I cannot lock onto a star, even in sidereal mode when using PHD2! The star keeps moving on its own, its like the mount cannot keep up with it! And because of this I cannot calibrate to finish off my polar alignment.

The scope is balanced and all parameters are set accordingly.

Polar alignment is fairly close, Mount is level, dec is set to my location and is roughly pointing south.

I have uploaded a small video to Youtube.

Can anyone think of anything to check?

Paul
