The Moon, it Moves!
I aligned the images on the Moon, Rather than Venus and Jupiter as a) the Moon smear was very unaesthetic, and didn't give a proper feel for how much it moved between shots and b) Venus is actually moving as well, quite slowly compared to the Moon, but fast enough that you can see the Jupiter and Venus tracks are different (allowing also for the fact that the Venus images are more over exposed than Jupiter).
Ideally I would have aligned against a "fixed star" but they were too dim in these images.
So there you have it, the Moon does move!
