Canon 6D Mark II - 28mm f1.8 long exposure distortions
1

I'm trying to determine how to avoid or correct for distortions I'm seeing with some night photos I've taken recently. Originally I think it was because I didn't take the UV filter off, but I've since went back out and see the distortions even with it off.

Here's a few Milky Way shots. The first one shows Jupiter to the bottom right. Many bright stars are kind of stretched out oval shaped as you move out of the center of field of view. There are sharp pinprick stars just beside them, so it is not star trails. The other 2 are from the same trip 2 months later. Does anyone know why this is happening? This is the widest lens I have to work with right now.
