After having my friend Dan Zafra aggressively brainwashing me for more than a year to get a star tracker, I decided to buy one (so I don't have to listen to him anymore 😅) and had the great opportunity to give it the first go in this incredible location. I still have no idea how I managed to align it properly but I think it worked out nicely and I am mesmerised by the results! What do you think?

50mm · f/2.8 · 120s · ISO 1600

Looks awesome! love the 50mm look of milky-way shots. Does your 50mm lens produce bad coma that you had to correct, or did it do this good of a job out of camera?

Hey man, thanks for your words! It is a track panorama so it allows me to stop down reducing the coma significantly. At f1.4 the coma is just horrible but at f4 is pretty good!
