Night sky photography

Hi,

Its astrophotography time here in Australia.

I uae 500 rules to capture night shots BUT still get a bit of star trails on my shots. Its %300 zoom.

I took my camera to Nikon authorized repair centre and they calibrated my focus saying had issue and needed adjustment.

I still not happy.

Is it normal to have tiny trails and i am just over concern or there is something wrong somwhere.

I use live view with %100 zoom to get the best focus.

My tripod is old but Manfrotto carbon fibre and ball head. But I am suspicious about the tripod which may not bo so stable during exposure.

Please let me know if you have ideas how to make it near perfect.

Thanks

Shot from my mobile canera from 4K monitor at %300
