M13 star cluster

My first attempt to shot M13 (NGC 6205) star cluster with the Canon EOS 100D on the Skywatcher Explorer 130P. Unfortunately with the Skywatcher 130P I can only focus an object, if I use a 2x Barlow lens to double the focal length. And because of the azimutal GoTo mount, I have to keep the exposure time low: M13 is centered very well by the GoTo, but the image rotates slowly around the center spot. It’s really not a telescope for photography 🙁
