Rhiannon78,
It's just one of soooo many filters you can buy for your lenses. This particular one when you turn it while over your regular lens makes different star designs.
Thanks Nicki.

You don't really need to buy a star filter though. Certain aperture settings can produce the star effect without a filter. You can also create this effect in post-processing.
