[FullHD] Video by astronomical telescope crater Arzachel on the Moon

In the video below, is observed Arzachel crater, an impressive crater from Imbrian Era, with well defined and deep walled terraces. It makes a nice trio with craters Alphonsus and Ptolemaeus, on north.

Notice the crater, and see the large interior wallsthe peak in the center, and the depression valleys of the walls southeast and southwest. East the center of the crater, is another smaller crater called Arzachel A.

Alpetragius crater nearby (40km), shows a central peak, which is a large rounded mountain, occupying most of the floor. This massive is measuring 15 km from north to south, and rises to a height of about 3500 m above the crater floor.

Under a bright sun, the craters are difficult to see with binoculars and small telescopes.
