Welcome. The _image_ certainly has structure, and it does rotate
a little, as you say. But I tend to think this structure belongs
to something in the optical train or the electronics rather than
to the object itself. I could be wrong, but to me it resembles a
diffraction pattern, as if there was a fine grating in front of
the lens.  The slow drift of the source in the un-zoomed view is
suggestive of an astronomical object IMO. But if so I'd like to
know exactly what causes the "diffraction" effect.
