I've been looking for the answer to this for a while now! Thank you very much, this has been bugging me!

I don't disagree with the reason for star crosses in photos but you are ignoring the fact that when you squint or look at a light source through glass or a similar medium it breaks into rays. Not perfect cross shaped rays, but still rays. Partially due to eyelashes and involunatary squinting.

Thanks very much, this explanation makes a lot of sense.

So, if the cross effect is cause by the supports within the telescope, why aren't there these artifacts on all the stars in the photographic field?
Comment from: Member
Because the artifacts are faint, and you'd need a longer exposure to capture them.

I was shocked at the amount of nonsense attributing the universe to a supernatural deity of some kind.If you believed in God it will open a whole new starsystem to you.

I see "crosses" in stars, especially in winter. I am the person in the car who can read the street signs way ahead of anyone else. There's nothing wrong with my night or "far" vision. So why do I see this with the naked eye?

These reason for the cross in all stars are false.
The telescope lens has nothing to do it.
The crosses are a form of radiation of all stars.
A star is a large photon of radiation or electromagnetic
Comment from: Ran Visitor
The comments about the cross as ignorant as I have ever heard!!!
The true explanation of cross was the one explaining radiation .

So if universe was not created by God then by whom, and for what purpose.
