The Lunar Cannon tech says to initally deploy between 2 of your planets and the bold description is Defend 2 planets. Since the idea of the tech is to defend , can you use it Offensively by redeploying it between 2 planets of my opponent with a wild destiny to gain a + 10 attack bonus on Offense or as an offensive ally ?

I don't understand how a wild destiny would redeploy it in any way. It does not move.

Seems pretty clear to me. You can use the lunar cannon in any encounter if you are a main player or ally and the target is next to the cannon, and you add 10 to the side you are on no matter if that's the offence or defense.

The bold description is only a shorthand description, it does not dictate the actual effect.

Of course it does move, read the card:
