I think that cannot be truly evidence for Apollo hoax. This is to lead us off track. This video is not real evidence for or against Apollo but is intended to confuse and direct the conversation toward the irrelevant.
The true story has to do with docking as I mentioned. They use LOR because they want men to go in and out of earth orbiting platforms. The Russians did too and so will the Chinese.

His crap about leaked footage is lies. His out of context clips, more so.

Great thread here with a wonderful mix of the solid and gaseous. The fact so many capable people spend so much time "defending" the landings is enough for me to walk away convince the thing was nothing more than a Kubrick trick.
"The need for measuring an angle precisely in space navigation is brought
out in the literature. For example, reference 1 shows that an increase in
sextant error from 10 to 50 seconds of arc causes a highly undesirable
increase in range and velocity deviation at perigee during a lunar roundtrip
mission. References 2 and 3 analyzed 3 to 2 velocity corrections based upon
426 sextant-type measurements and showed that bias errors of 10 seconds of arc
were too great to warrant the use of long sighting schedules. Therefore, it
appears that a sextant for precise space navigation should yield an error of
less than 10 seconds of arc."

That video could likely be one of the most damning pieces of footage ever leaked.
The "leaked" footage was debunked in the first few pages of this thread.
On July 13, a Sunday, at 5:55 A.M. Moscow time -- 10:55 P.M. Saturday, EDT, at Cape Kennedy, a little less than seventy-two hours before the launch of Apollo 11 -- the Soviet Union launched an unmanned moon rocket which was called Luna 15
You do not understand the fundamental logistic of the platform alignment procedure. The astronauts themselves must align the IMU platform. It would not matter if there was a 21st century supercomputer which they could access. They and they alone with their hardwired star chart align the platform. The ground team cannot do this. Their computer cannot do this. The star chart carried aboard the imagined Apollo ship is fixed and immutable.
