Video by telescope. From Kepler to Grimaldi. Moon craters.

Video starts from ray crater Kepler, and then crossing Oceanus Procellarum on wich appears Reiner crater and Reiner Gamma above (which shows a high albedo). We move toward the edge of the Moon, where crater Grimaldi is, wich looks like a dark stain.

There is no shadow on the Moon in this video, and in full light, Moon soil has a different look because in these conditions, the edges of craters or ridges heights are not discernable, but only dark spots, bright spots, rivers and rays of light.
