Digital astronomy: Video Cleomedes lunar crater by telescope.

Video images of the lunar crater Cleomedes on the east of the Moon through the telescope, are somewhere on here. The images were stabilized, and the athmosphere quality was acceptable.
Cleomedes is a crater wich have a shovel shape. It has this form because of its position on the Moon seen from Earth. But it has a nearly circular shape.
Above Cleomedes is Burckhardt (57 km), smaller, and Geminus (86 km), bigger. In the southern extension of Cleomedes is Mare Crisium. Last crater that appears at the top of the clip is Messala (124 km).
