Description

Taken at 85mm f/5.6
My first photo ever using my DIY motorized barndoor tracker. I had some trouble with polar alignment so even though my exposures were only 10 seconds long , some star trailing is visible. Along with some moderate coma and astigmatism.
Overall I´m really happy with how it came out and I´m already eager to go out again and improve these results.
I hope you enjoy it!! Any feedback is welcome.
