Hi. Newbie hobbyist who started last June. Does anybody know what would cause the "bullseye" in the center of this shot? I shot this using an a7r iii with FE 2.8/24-70 GM lens. My settings were 15 sec, f/4, iso 800. Also, I didn't see the bullseye on shots at 5 sec, f/4, iso 800. I had Long Exposure NR off for both shots. Thanks.

Odd but taking a wild guess here... Stabilization turned off? It's recommended for tripod use. When shooting with a matte box if I'm not careful shooting towards the sun or have the flag off position I'll get a reflection of the lens on the 2nd surface of the filter but it presents much larger than what's shown here.

Allow me to add my own 'bullseye puzzle. I agree the OP photo looks like Newton's rings, now that I know what that is. But my bullseye is much larger. Have you seen this? It's not dependent on lens. a6000

Looks like the lens correction being applied for vignetting. And possibly then pushed in post?

Try turning off "Shading Comp." on the camera. Google that and you'll find a bunch of info.
