HD Video by astronomical telescope crater Plato and Sinus Iridum bay

Plato crater and Sinus Iridum, are both located on the north Moon on southern Mare Frigoris. There are two common articles with these videos, those being processed in Registax: Crater Plato Registax images and Sinus Iridum in sunlight Pictures through the telescope. Both have pictures from this video.

Between the two, Sinus Iridum and Plato (101 km), are 367 km from the eastern edge of the Sinus Iridum (Promotorium Laplace), and the center of Plato. In this area are Montes Teneriffe and Montes Recti located on the plateau of Mare Imbrium basin.

The sun shines from a high angle considering that the Moon was 93% illuminated.

I hope you enjoy this video made in a frosty winter night of 30 to 31 December 2013, the Earth's atmosphere was clean.

Most of these video craters can be seen even with binoculars and a good view is when the sun is at a low angle.
