Nice try Jane, the green halo could be caused by over enlarging the pic. I realise to get an acceptable size it needs enlarging but try a 1.4 or 2x extender so you do not have to enlarge the image so much.

Green halo is most likely caused by chromatic aberation of lens or extender.

Can be fixed in camera but only if you have won the lottery and can afford the very best optics.

However, most RAW processing programs, Canon Photo Pro, Lightroom, Photoshop etc can reduce this effect in post processing.

I think the colour you see is probably blue cos there's the same effect at the bottom of the moon in the red phase.

Great first effort.
