In sunlight, Sinus Iridum, or "Bay of Rainbows" show it's undeniable beauty of the northern Moon. This bay, is contemplated by most observers through a telescope or binoculars, being the most popular feature of the Moon among amateur astronomers, which is easily recognizable and benchmarks.

It is difficult to get sharp images when the sun is at a high angle, but if you're lucky to film or photograph through a telescope in one night with a clear atmosphere, you can achieve amazing shots even in these conditions. The pictures above, are of a video processing in Registax, from which were taken 385 and 728 shots, merged to form a single image.

Sinus Iridum, is often misspelled "Iridium". You can convince yourself by a simple Google search. I admit that I wrote in all my posts before "Iridium" and I will correct all, except the name of the label, because it will not appear in any of the articles in the link I referred to this bay, becoming a broken link.
