Air turbulence is clearly visible on full moon video close to horizon

This is my first video from the second hand skywatcher maksutov 150/1800 telescope, which I bought. This OTA (Optical Tube Assembly) came with an old Celestron AS-GT (CG-5) mount. For the moon photo, I used a manual skywatcher EQ5 mount…

The moon was about 12 degrees above horizon, and with this maksutov and with a 2x teleconverter one can clearly see the air turbulence… The screen size of video below is 25% of the original to reduce the size of the file.
