I suggest using an older single-coated lens. My choice for what I'm going to do is a 55mm f1.9 Minolta MC lens, one of their earliest lenses. (here MC doesn't mean multi-coated.) On my GF2, because that's what I have.

If anyone has an X-10, that's supposed to be pretty good. But for easy-cheap results, there were a couple of old 2 mp Oly cameras which famously only needed an R72 filter on the lens and the menu setting 'night mode.'

The x10 is pretty good, but it takes a little work to hide the hot spot.

I've had acceptable results in LR brushing positive Clarity, negative highlight and positive shadow over a hot spot. (can't recall the starting mixture, and it can vary depending  on the effect and elements in the area - but worth a try if you got it).
