It's a telescope artifact.

ie. reflection of light off the telescope mirror(s)

Dang! "Recently Awaken" beat me to it! Stupid screencap bugware...

He's referring to this:



It is, indeed a telescope artifact. In a normal camera it's called lense flare. Most professional telescopes don't have lenses, but they can still pick up a stray reflection if something bright is shining into the tube from off axis.

In this case, if you zoom-out you'll find that Sirius (the brightest star in the sky) is nearby at about the 7-o'clock position:



This lines-up perfectly with the short-axis of the artifact, and is thus most likely its cause.
