Lunar Vistas with strange shadow

Tried imaging M20 last night but gave up due to bad seeing and moon glare
Captured some lunar images about 20 deg past the meridian
Canon 600D
ISO800
Captured via BYEOS Planetary mode
1500 AVI frames

•Prime Focus
•2 x Powermate
•2.5 x Powermate
•4 x Powermate

•Lunar terrain craters Alphonsus and Arzachel 5 x Powermate 5 x zoom
•Lunar terrain craters Archimedes, Arstillus and Autolycus 5 x Powermate 5x zoom
•Appenine moutain range 5 x Powermate 5 x zoom

Stacked in Autostakkert 3
Processed in Registax 6

Seeing was on the poor side as the lunar terrain video was jumping around quite a bit even on lower mag
NB : if you look at the moon shots there is what looks like a rectangular shadow artifact on the upper region of the moon extending out from the terminator. Any ideas what this is or is it an actual moons mare areas in the shape of a rectangle ?? Very strange phenomenon
Moon was up around 50 deg in the north west with a clear view from my scope
I welcome any suggestions or comments
Thanks for looking
