Jasta 7 Fokker DVIIs

Looking at the rather poor photo of Jasta 7 aircraft lined up(Opsprey DRI aces pg. 71), I see two DRIs and four DVIIs. I am assuming the first AC(closest) is Nebgen's and the third DVII is surely Jacobs' DVII. Can anyone identify the second and fourth AC? The second has a band around the fuselage.What color band? The fourth AC is difficult to see but could it be Schonfelder's? What did his gold star marking look like?
Sorry for all the questions.
Also if you can tell me where to find more photos of Jasta 7,especially of their DVIIs, that would be greatly appreciated as well.

Thanks to all.

What did his (Schönfelder's) gold star marking look like?... a Yellow star of David. Usually with Jasta 7 the initials on the top wings give us an indication of who the pilot is. See Cross & Cockade Intl.

Thanks for the reference!
I am going to have to look for the past post that showed how to put the umlaut(sp?) in names like Schonfelder.
