Montes Jura (astronomical telescope Video)

Two clips through my telescope Sinus Iridium on the Moon, or so-called "Bay of Rainbows". The clips are stabilized to eliminate the image shakes.
Golf is almost flooded with sunlight.

Mountain formation surrounding the Gulf (Sinus Iridium), it's called Montes Jura.

End of the southwest mountains is called Heraclides Promontorium, while the north-east end is called Laplace Promontorium. Peaks of these mountains are caught in sunlight, producing a series of bright dots, and that effect have been described as "jewels".

In the distant past Montes Jura formed the outer wall of a crater about 260 km in diameter. Southeast of the crater was later destroyed and flooded with basaltic lava inside , from Mare Imbrium.

The Jura mountain range, are craters of which I mention Bianchini, who is in the north-western mountains curve. A little further west is Sharp crater and to the northeast is Maupertuis, a ruined crater.
