         In this stabilized video, the first that leaves the images is Cassini crater. Lying on the plateau that follows, which is Mare Imbrium (the north), there are few craters and mountain formations.
       Of these, I enumerate the first to disappear from the image on the right, which is Mons Piton, or Piton Mountain, a 2.3 km high mountain which is located on the east of Mare Imbrium , on the northwest of Aristillus crater and east of Mons Piton is also the flooded crater Cassini and on northwest is Piazzi Smyth small crater wich is 13 km in diameter. Also, on north-east of this massive are the Montes Alpes , which forms the northeast edge of the sea and are visible in the early part of the clip on top.

        Large crater just beginning to see to the second 05, is Plato 101 km in diameter.
Mons Pico 2.4 km high, is also an isolated mountain on the plateau is coming out from the left edge of the video on the second 02, and soon after, Montes Teneriffe, in the form of a fork with three heads.

The image above is to see where are the formations presented in this article. and is turned upside down as seen through a telescope.
