There are no other objects. What there are artifacts from the processing of the images and hot pixels.
Here is the most recent image:

Here is a visual explanation.
If these images don't speak for themselves then believe whatever you want.
Now that you know where these objects were in the sky, imagine yourself viewing them from Earth and compare to the clips in the OP.

Flats and Darks are images that are taken to correct for inconsistancies in the image train and for the noise from the CCD camera. A Dark image is made by blocking the incoming light (say by putting the lens cap on) and shooting a few images or AVI under the same conditions as were used for the imaging session. A Flat field image is aquired by taking a picture (or AVI) of a uniformly lit, white field using the same optical set up that the images were aquired under. You want the flat to be exposed at about 50% of pixel saturation for your camera. This can be done by using a light box that fits over the end of your telescope, or by shooting the twilight sky, or by shining a light on a white sheet or T-shirt drapped over the telescope. The flat field is divided into the images to remove defects like dust and vignetting. Dark images are subtracted to remove hot pixels. RegiStax can make a master dark or flat field image for you. Simply open the flat images (several stills or an AVI) and click on the "Flat/Dark" tab. Select "create flat" to make the master flat or "create dark" to make the master dark. Once created, save the images. You load these images here as well. Once loaded, the images will be applied during processing. Just click the checkbox and RegiStax will do the rest. If you apply flats and darks and you find your image comes out dark... play with the gamma and image/contrast sliders on the Wavelet page to see if you can bring up the image.
Phage just owned all of you like always. For the tenth thousand time.
