Star Green halo = Using Sharp

I have noticed sometimes after using the StarTools Sharp module, some of the stars or bright nebulosity will have a green halo.
What cause the halo? how can it be fixed once the image is processed or the Undo can not be used ?

Thank you
Richard

Re: Dusty Pleiades

Peter, This is a nice photo. I did the Pleiades in early January. What I like about Startools is the preservation of colors. Looking at your photo and looking at mine, I see some amazing similarities, (as it should) specifically with the star colors.
Looks great!

Re: M-101 Pinwheel colors

happy-kat;
When you suggests to get more data, do you mean longer exposure or more frames with the same 100 sec exposure time?
