Star lapse orange (sepia) problem.

When I take pictures of the stars, there is always a red glow on the picture.
How can I fix this?

    This is possibly light pollution. Is there a village/town/city in the direction you are shooting?

    I agree with @ASINLEMOUAT. Space is not black, it is a dark magnolia and nothing shows this up better than light pollution. If you look at NASA's images of the universe before they are processed, you will see the same sort of red/brown cast. So don't worry, you are doing nothing wrong.

    Try setting white balance to daylight, not auto. Shoot in RAW for more after shot control. Try changing white balance in NX2 or paintshop.
