    Yes, it is a camera artifact. The camera is usually shifted in that pattern between pictures and the stars re-aligned for us to view.

    I've seen others where all the stars move in that camera pattern though. This is just one dot moving...........

    Yes, see what you mean now, the black artefacts seem to move in that same pattern.

    Exactly. The single dots like this are #hot-pixel artifacts, while the black spots are flat field deflects. Both show this movement pattern.
