Bright upper left side and colour artifacts?

    I have no idea what's going with this image? Can anyone explain what's caused this?

    Hi MauriceLN and welcome to the Zoo

    The bright object, top left, is a foreground star from our galaxy. The colours, spikes and blue horizontal spike are all optical artifacts.

    And please, always classify the object in the centre of the image, even if it is the most boring one ! ;D

    Happy hunting !
