Bright red dots

  • Shila_H_ by Shila_H_

    Hi, all,
    I'm brand new to this project, and have had two pictures in a row with bright red as well as bright green dots. I know we need to mark the green; do we mark the red?
    Thank you!

    The red and green dots in this image look like artifacts to me. This happens because of problems with the electronics in the camera. Typically if you see dots this small and defined, they are artifacts and not actually astronomical objects.
