OOPS again

Looks like I found the cause of the funny shot. Dust on the secondary mirror.......I made the entire capture into an AVI and what was happening was very obvious. The Scope must have been knocked of alignment slightly and I was getting drift as respect to M8 (top right to bottom left)
It was how Maxim DL stacked the images to align them that caused the dust particles to streak across the field of view, a lttle bit of wind hitting the scope to cause the wiggles.
