synth module weirdness

Any idea why I'm getting this square box around the star? It made the diffraction spikes fine, but the box shouldn't be there. I made a mask that just covers the bright center of the star.

How would I fix this?

I have this image of Cygnus, and as you can see, there is a dark arc-shaped section on the right side. It's actually on the left side, too, but I cropped it out. What causes this,and how can I get rid of it?

Re: wipe tips?

Also, I think part of the cloudiness I was seeing was actually part of the Milky way (not the crazy edges of the frame, but the more central areas).

Re: wipe tips?

Thanks! I will try re-stretching; that's something I didn't do afterwards. Also, I didn't use flats, so that could be part of the problem. I'll play around with it some more and see what happens :thumbsup: P.S. I posted the shots backwards.....the first one is after wipe, and the second is the origi...

wipe tips?

So I'm not sure what is going on with wipe, but it seems to make matters much worse. Any tips on what I may be doing wrong? This image is just a wide shot of Cassiopeia.

saving?

I guess I am missing something, but why can't I save the image when done? If I rename the file, I get this error (attached). If I overwrite the original file, it works, but I shouldn't have to do that, right?
