The halos became far more visible once the film was converted to video and broadcast on television, due to, I guess, the conversion process increasing the contrast somehow.

When I saw STAR TREK III in HD on a cable channel, I recall that the spaceship fx at the Genesis planet were a wreck. Those roughly shaped "garbage" halos were hugely noticeable. And when the Klingon ship is cloaked and all you're supposed to see is a twinkle of stars on the bridge viewscreen, you can instead see the whole Bird of Prey, plain as anything.
