Some assistance please.
Hi all, I'm new to this and could do with some guidance if anyone out there is a complete brainbox. I have come across this image along with a second one, both with these black dots in the middle of the stars. Is this an image fault or something else important? also I assume these are ego's on the right hand side. Just seems odd that I have two images now with these black dots. don't want to hazard my own guess at the moment as I am probably way off mark! appreciate any comments please. Thanks - Andy

Hi Andy and welcome to MWP
The black dots in the middle of bright stars are optical artifacts caused by oversaturation.
And I would have marked the green fuzz as well as an EGO, but it could be an artifact of some sorts as well. The jury is still out ! 😄
Happy hunting !
Thank you Elizabeth. appreciate the reply. Andy
