The green and magenta banding are there in any picture style. They exist in the sky and are not an artifact. They show up in lots of full frame camera images not just D800E.

They are cousins to aurora. Green is ionised oxygen, magenta is something else - sodium I think.

Green, Magenta Banding is due to an phenomenon called air glow..I have seen those on some of my astro shots taken in Mono Lake last year
