I want to do moon timelapses with 600mm and more including the landscape on a small star tracker or pan/tilt head. I have tried to stabilize the timelapse using Photoshop or ImPPG, but it freezes the foreground. I am using Davinci Resolve for video processing, so I could not try Adobe Premiere or After Effects.

Stable images out of camera with a 600mm+ lens may be possible only by using a heavy telescope mount for >3k EUR. Any idea how I can stabilize such timelapses by software?

A quick examples with a 300mm lens and my pan/tilt head in moderate windy condition:
