Interesting object

possibly a problem with the telescope, but it has the shape of a structure surrounding the star?

I would say it’s just overexposure of the detector - it is a very bright star.

thank you for clarifying the doubt

np. Were you wondering if it was some sort of natural structure or fabricated structure or something?

Trying to be a bit imaginative, it might seem like a structure that surrounds the star, but there remains the doubt that is resolved by your answer about the exposure of the detector and that it is a very bright star.

Yes of course. Imagination is how discoveries are made - its the best tool to have as a scientist imo
