Newbie question about image processing


Recommended Posts

Hello very new and green 

I have taken images with an iPhone and spotting scope, using an adaptor. The ones of the moon have been successful  but the ones of stars have the stars in the background albeit faint but are washed our by blue light , brightest in the centre fading to the edge   It was a 15 second exposure and a dark sky. (Holiday Northumberland):)

i have serif photo plus isit possible that to process the images to remove this all advice gratefully received

Thank you both I will have a look at the free Photoshop and Gimp and will try white balance in Serif, will let you know hopefully with before and after if I make any progress.

Before and after posted also one of the moon.
