    Weird ripple effect after export to .jpg


      I have been attempting to create star trails for the past couple of weeks.  I'm using a Canon T3i, shooting in RAW forward and the lens is a Canon 40mm pancake lens.

      When I look at the 200+ layer image in Photoshop CC, it looks like this:

      Looks okay.  But when I export the image out to a .jpg, I get a weird "wavy" effect in the image

      Is there any way to get rid of that?  I'm using the lightening blending effect when I merge the layers.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
