It also seems added in to the video. It's too clear and the moon is not in focus as well as this UFO is. Maybe a really expensive telescope has the
features to focus in on closer objects, but I doubt this guy's scope can do that. It definitely looks to be inserted into the video.
Definitely a possibility.
The object is either associated with the moon, or the telescope optics -- I don't think it would be a nearby object [several feet from telescope] for
the following reason.
The celestial sphere "moves" about one degree every four minutes, and since the moon is half a degree in diameter, in the course of the two minute
video it would have shifted one entire diameter.
But it didn't, so some sort of motion compensation is being used, either a motorized drive or manual adjustment.
Anything between the telescope and the moon would NOT be shifting with the celestial sphere so it would have moved out of the field of view
I don't know how to interpret this clue, but there are optics and observation folks here who do.
