It doesn't look too bad to me.
Maybe too much wavelets.

How many frames did you choose for stacking ?

That may explain it Andy....

.... in the Alignment Options (on the left) you will see Quality Setting.  I'm guessing that for you it is set at Gradient2 [whcih is correct] and the Lowest Quality is set to 100 ?  Reduce the Lowest Quality to 95 and give that a go.

Also, bring up the Frame List (button, top middle) and before selecting your alignment point scroll through the list till you find a frame that is nice and sharp etc and Registax will use that as it's reference frame !

And in stacking phase you can left worse frames out.
I usually stack between 20-50% best frames.
There are many Registax tutorials.
This is one sample:
