    You have a filter on?

    If so, that's the main reason.

    i only have the "UV filter" on the lense....

    meaning, no UV filter in the room condition?

    Look at your lens. It's already very deep inside. When you add a piece of optic so far away from the front element of the lens, it will cause a reflection when you shoot night images (with bright spots)

    removing the filter will remove this problem.

    And you don't need a filter for the 50mm anyway.
