I have recently began taking more pictures at night. I have noticed at 100% view I see small red and purple specks that I do not believe are stars. They do not trail like the stars. These are 1 minute or less exposures.

Is this "noise" or something else. I do a poor job staying out of dusty areas and wonder if there is something inside the camera.

Here is one of the images.

Thanks for any information.
