Abstract: Consider a Polish topological group $ G$ acting via $ J$ on a substandard (= countably generated) Borel space. Theorem 1. Any such "Borel action" can be extended to a Borel action $ J':G \times X' \to X'$ where $ X'$ is coanalytic. (Theorem 3 gives an analogue for continuous actions.) Corollary 2. The result "in any Borel action, orbits are Borel" implies the (well-known) result "all such orbits are absolutely Borel".
