With me its a Nikon D700 and 24-70 F2.8 and is in low light conditions such as this. Same ripples but interestingly not from the lights in the picture but central and concentric as this is.

You only getting this is strong extreme light situations? I had it on some of my Night shots with auroa but not all of them, which I just didnt get either.

Looks a bit like Newton's Rings to me. Note that the light source is monochromatic (well, almost -- just the two closely-spaced sodium D lines) which will accentuate the problem. Try removing your UV filter.

I believe it's something in the processing, maybe in the shadows and brightness adjustment. I reported it on one of Arthur Morris's shots a couple weeks ago; btw, he was using a Canon Mark IV and 800mm f5.6 lens, so I don't think it's produced in-camera.

Not in the processing im afraid as was in all shots straight out of camera in rawSad Good news is uv off and its fineSmile
