20-100 mm F1.8 TV Zoom Lens @ 100 mm

Raw UNPROCESSED photo.

Interesting object that has not been identified.
The halo structure does NOT appear to be
generated in the optics or camera and only
appears on this object.
Update


Contrast enhanced but NO dark frame was
subtracted. I intend to go back to this object
after the new optics are installed. This photo
was somewhat blurred due to vibration from
the new experimental clock drive. There is
also some field rotation from the long time
exposure.
Update


First Light 0.0003 Lux Camera
~1 Inch Aperature TV Lens - FL Unknown
And not a clue as to what I was doing or pointing at!

All I know is I couldn't see any of this stuff with my eyes.
