Finding Polar alignment very difficult!

Just spent a couple of hours aligning and then taking lights and darks, flats and biases only to find that the Polar Alignment must have been out as all the stars have tails!!

I bought an adapter so that I could use the illuminator with the declination mount fitted but the light is so dim I can't see the graticule - so that was a waste of money!  Tried shining my red torch toward the opening but the star was so dim I could only see the graticule.

Any advice would be most appreciated................

But tomorrow is another night 😁😁😁
