Please keep us posted Emilio
I have 2 GSO RCs, they are mostly sitting in the corner, but I may be inspired to re-energize them!

Maybe this will put an end to the GSO discussions. I did some searching. Teleskop Service sells a baffle addition for the stock baffle sold on GSO RCs which were shown to have light leaks around the secondary baffle and produce similar artifacts to what I experienced and what Robert is experiencing. It is called a light shade baffle and they make them for several size scopes. Apparently the issue was detected back in 2017 by a gentleman named Knute H. Shaffner and in collaboration with Teleskop Service TS started making the baffles. I am ordering one for my 12" GSO and I suppose I could experiment an extension to the baffle, but that would take some time and time is money and is better spent under clear skies.
