Based on your description you aren’t getting a true center of axis during the turn. Several things to check and ways to do it.

Check for play in the bearings in the head stock, check run out on spindle, check the chuck (incorrectly threaded or cross threaded onto spindle) are likely what I would investigate first.

Based on the photo looks like technique can be ruled out (tool overhang and support).
