Could this be as simple as Orbital debris that passed through the telescopes field of view? Or something else?
Thoughts? It does look interesting.
Here's a possibility : the black-dot is a dead pixel on his camera's image sensor. The image of the moon moves across the FIXED camera's sensor due to Earth's rotation , this movement is corrected for in software which makes the dead pixel appear to move across the face of the moon.

Apparently The Huffington Post article about these videos was printed without even contacting the video's creator. He made a video yesterday regarding this, going into detail about their spurious and misleading report. He mentions that objects in CLOSE earth orbit do move across the screen in seconds, however, those in far earth object won't etc. etc. For all the skeptics here this video is worth checking out (can't seem to embed it so I will just post the link):
Nikon’s people say their downsampling technique for the D800’s video mode is classified info. So Falk Lumo has gone and found out for himself, with a great technical analysis of the Nikon D800 and how it obtains 1080p video from the huge 36MP Sony sensor inside.
Does it line-skip? The answer is ‘yes’ but Falk says it is a much refined version of line-skipping on the 5D Mark II.
the D800 reads every 3rd line of the sensor from a 1.095x crop in FX mode. When the sensor output is demosaiced to a near-final RGB image, resolution is an impressive 2240 x 1260.
This is then downsampled (presumably in a pretty decent way) to 1920 x 1080.
This benefits resolution, but due to the original line skipping there’s still some moire and aliasing especially on high contrast horizontal lines.

I appreciate your knowledge as to the cameras.
What needs to be emphasized is that these objects do not need to be in orbit in order to transit the moon's face. The lack of motion within the objects is suggestive of a solid body. The shape IS rounded regardless of the 'halo' effect. The modification of direction is normally associated with biological manifestations or atmospheric influences.
Since little detail is present, assumptions as to these objects' nature are only that, assumptions. Any thoughts as to the non-UFO aspect are equally invalid.
They are UFOs.
