Original Poster


alright folks, i just got home and dug around lightroom, turns out that thw two previous underexposed shots that i had exhibited the same effect, only it wasnt visible until i overexposed it by 4 stops and played around with the temperature scale,

shot 1, this was way underexposed

shot 2, still underexposed

and here is the original shot, in which i just blew it up.

sorry Ben, no UFO here

aside from the obvious dust spot on the left, whats that conical light beam in the center of the sky?

this was at F9.0 @ 20 seconds exposure ISO 800 (i know, very odd combination, LOL)

That's a flare.
