Thanks for all your input! I went and ordered the sanding pads DS recommended but it wont arrive til tomorrow. In the meantime i applied one more thin coat of 50/50poly and that covered up some of the scratches. After i applied and let it dry dust settled on the finish. so instead of sanding i tried the claybar technique and THAT removed the dust nibs without producing any more scratches while still leaving me with a smooth finish. Next i applied Meguiars swirl mark remover with a Surbuf pad on my random orbital sander. Had to do it 3 times and the scratches were finally gone. I then buffed it with Meguiars polish/wax. I was going for a semigloss look but with all the buffing and waxing it came out glossy, almost mirror like. I guess i could live with it.
