I've been getting some really bad tracking recently so I haven't really been making anything worth posting, until I think I found the problem.
The forks were binding on the base of the mount at one or two spots and I think that caused my RA to go daft. Because the DEC has been almost perfect - just the RA way off. now I can see why!
Anyway this is the first pair of subs since I seem to have cured the problem.
2 x 2 1/2 mins iso 800 plus two darks.

Tracking looks pretty good, Jen. Time to start taking more subs, more darks and some flats?

Cheers,
Rick.

No, but now that your tracking is OK it might be worth making some other improvements...

Sad, isn't it... I'm hoping it's all gone by the weekend.
