Is the aurora photo processed through something like photoshop? Or is that the original image taken from the THETA with no processing? Certain filters on Photoshop will cause this problem. If it’s the raw image, try to align the edge of the camera toward the largest bright spot when the shot is taken. It seems like either the image was processed with a filter or there is a problem with the camera.
Are you using the newest firmware? The firmware can be upgraded with the desktop application.
If you have a Raspbian image, we can put it on the theta360developers GitHub repo in addition to other places to make it easier for people to find.
I’ll look into the image problem a bit more.
Thanks for all your work on this. Super cool project and would love to see more beautiful pictures.
