Could The Gimbal Video Show an Atlas V Launch?

If the camera was mounted in the gimbal I'd be with you. But there is no camera nor any lenses in the rotating part of the gimbal, on!y mirrors. The camera with its lenses is mounted in the fixed part of the ATFLIR.

The gimbal is not exactly looking downward either, because the jet is banking. I'd expect it would be looking more sideways with respect to the jet.

Which thread would you suggest to continue this discussion?

Just to answer the question about visibility of a rocket launch from Jacksonville operating areas, rocket launches at night are easily visible from Jacksonville.
A friend in Wilmington, NC, noticed his security camera in the carport caught a fireball meteor (it was during the Taurids, iirc) and a SpaceX launch. If there is interest, I will seek permission to link or repost that here.

And part of that optical system is a derotation device.

Downward -2⁰ with respect to the horizon.
