Welcome to the challenges of finishing large flat surfaces – its why I spray them. You need to rub out the finish, if the film thickness is where you want it. If not, keep adding coats and scuffing in between.

Wet sanding with say 800, use ms not water, will knockdown high spots. Then go over the whole thing with 1000 and 1200, then 0000 steel wool, then various auto paint polishes to get it to the sheen you want. Hopefully you dont go through the last layer of finish and get ghost lines. Poly is a great finish to own, but can be a pita to apply and get just right.

You can also wet sand with the poly, then just wipe it off. Helps fill the pores.
