Try using a random orbital polisher (RO) instead of a rotary polisher.

I think rotary polisher can cause holograms and buffer trails.

I have to assume your car is black? I would completely get away from using a foam pad on black I think. Like the previous post stated, I would try an orbital with a microfiber cloth on it. I had plenty of drying swirls in mine and now they are all gone! You have to be patient with black and make sure you over lap your passes!

What's your experience with using a rotary?

You shouldn't be moving on to a finer polish or LSP unless the defects you wanted to remove are gone.
