Initial image similar to 4-point star

    I've noticed some samples where the initial image has the appearance of a 4-point star, then quickly becomes more roundish. Would these be good candidates or is that initial appearance a bad sign?

    Those can still be good candidates, the four points is an artifact of the telescope itself, not the object

    I found a few of those too. On the bigger sized ones i thought I could make out structure in the object. In any case I nixed those because the "ray" artifacts were well outside the circle. Sorry bout that!
