45 frames stacked in poor seeing.
Couldn't get rid of a strange effect on the edge , looks like a stacking problem but the features all line up OK ?
1000D + ST120 + ND3.8 + 1.8 x Barlow + UHC + S/L.
1/1250s @ ISO 100 , 45/45 , Reg 5.1 , Gimp2.8.

You might be seeing more of a sharpening effect on the edge such as "ringing." I often see this with unsharp masking. Sometimes adding some "clipping" or adding a little gaussian blurring will help.

I had a funny thin halo on the subs that I'm sure was an atmospheric thing , the seeing was poor and the disc appeared to be 'flexing' and had a very rough edge.
Crop from single sub.
Having had a play I can reduce it somewhat by moving the blackpoint on the subs so I will probably just select the very best subs tomorrow , adjust and restack to see if I can improve this one .
going to be cloudy again so need something to do . . .

I was thinking about this and went back to review the processing of one of my better white light images taken last April. The seeing was excellent (at least for me), so I don’t think that’s the origin - at least of the bright ring aspect of the effect. I too use RegiStax – version 6.
Here’s my original (reduced size) full disc mosaic, showing the “edge effect:” I appear to use a little less contrast enhancement and final sharpening than your image:

The effect was showing on my stacks pre-wavelet , and gone today . . . I can only put it down to the seeing . . !
