Problem: Stars not twinkling smoothly, sky moving in small fast jerky steps which is causing the stars to also move in small quick jerks, thereby making their shining/twinkling seem like it's stuttering. Basically the sky is not moving smoothly but in small jerks.
UPDATE - On one side of the sky the stars are twinkling perfectly, fading in and out beautifully, but in the opposite side of the sky they are just blinking on and off very jarringly and noticably.
Background info: Just did a clean install of skyrim, it ran really smoothly, over 60fps. Installed a lot of texture mods, no lighting mods except Climates of Tamriel with level 8 dark nights. No other gameplay mods other than UI mods like skyui and immersive hud etc. After all this game is still running at 25+fps with minimal stutter only after loading and turning fast.
I use SKSE and FXAA injector without any problems and have already tried switching the FXAA injector on/off to no avail.
I have not added any sky or stars, galaxy enhancing mods and even after disabling COT, waiting 31 days, the problem persists. All other animations, everything else is fine. Just the stars look jarring.
Even with the Enhanced Night mod the problem persists.
I have also added some changes to my ini settings as follows
6GB DDR3 ram
intel core i5 3330 @ 3.00 GHZ
Nvidia GTS 450 (1GB DDR5)
500 GB HDD
Please someone help, I just spent 3 days modding skyrim following STEP and other things, I can't afford to do it again! Thanks in advance!

Watch in 720p full screen, sorry for vid quality best i could do in a short time. The problem is most apparent near the end of the video. As you can see fps is good and smoke and clouds are smooth, only stars are stuttering.
