HD Video by astronomical telescope Crater Meton on the Moon

The video presented here refers to another article Amazing detail of Crater Meton Pictures of Moon, in which I have presented images extracted from the video in Registax.
 Clarity of the atmosphere was quite acceptable on the day before New Year, but it was very cold, only managing to stay out for a few moments with hot tea in my thermos, but the wind was quite strong especially between the blocks where the wind is more powerful.

Video below, is focused on the north side of the Moon, ie the crater Meton, over which it is observed that some albedo rays traversing. These rays come from the new crater, Anaxagoras (51 km), the ejection being scattered over a large part of the region.
The image is inverted, upside down, as seen through a telescope.

Meton (122 km), which is a crater observed skew from Earth through a telescope due to its northern position of the Moon, and is easily distinguished due to its flower shape like petals. Actually it consists of several craters that were united by lava in the past.

On the first impression is about five craters, but we can not know how many others were in the central area under the hardened lava.

Meton has neighbors many craters: northwest is Scoresby (56 km), northwest Euctemon (62 km), southeast Neison (53 km), south C. Mayer (38 km), and to the west is the crater Barrow (93 km).

In some moments, according to Moon libration, the crater is seen better, so that is not oval, but inclined towards the observer, and thus its characteristics are distinguished better.

The western part of Meton is irregular, its edge being interrupted here and there, and the floor in general is riddled with countless other small craters, which are distinguished only by an 8-inch telescope.

Age of the Moon: 17 days
Phase: 93% (0% = New, 100% = full)
Distance: 396.848 km
