The images look like they come from Google Sky or a similar program.
I'm calling bogus.

if it was taken through a telescope then it looks like jitter to me. wind causes jitter. telescopes do not track perfectly and amateur telescopes definitely do not. planets do not move like that, if they did they'd be ripped to shreds. if perturbed, it definitely would not move back.
besides, if it were truly perturbed it would be astronomical headlines.
so no, there was no perturbation, just telescope jitter.

You did such great work, I was hoping it would stick!
But it looks like they're back today with another upload - looks like the same pics? Maybe you should have a look to see where they stole it from, if it's even legit? They've posted a spiel about copyrighting their stuff now, too.
