I was concerned that these artefacts would impact on my ability to image this faint detail - so far that doesn't seem to be the case.
Those patterns show up in single frames so it doesnít make any difference with the total integration. Confirmation bias

As for solar, I donít imagine itíll matter because youíre not dealing with a point light source
