The Carina Nebula alongside the firefly party cluster.
This is my first upload. It's also one of my first pictures made with a "long" camera lens and a sky tracker.
I'm still dealing with focusing. I will try with a home made Bahtinov mask since due to the lockdown I don't want to order anything and wait it for months.
Also it looks like the stars are runing away from the center of the image. I don't know if that's because of the quality of the lens, some drift while tracking or a tilted sensor maybe. What do you think?
C&C will really be appreciated!
