mig welding aluminum

I practiced mig welding aluminum today. I had a lot of trouble getting a good start to my weld. Once I got going I had what appeard to be a good weld. Can anyone offer a suggestion as to why Im not getting a good start?

Im using a millermatic 210 with a spool gun.
The aluminum is 1/2"
