Doubtful. Hey! Umm... Well, the lens of my FSQ isn't what you'd call CLEAN at this moment but... No way Actually, it pretty much "just happens" on really bright and colorful stars, such as this one or for example, Aldebaran (mag 0.87) in my Hyades shot. It's especially noticeable on red giants, but it too happens on bright blue stars as well.Anyway, glad to be here! Like I told Harry, I may not be a regular all the time, not because I don't like being accessible but because I feel I'm already in more astro-related forums, groups, etc than I can handle (I'm sure you all know the feeling) and I'm known for having failed before at other forums, but I'll do my best to stop by often.
