Lunar Photo - Gassendi crater.

466 frames at 85% best quality in Registax.

This image depicts the west of the Moon.
At center in image is the crater Gassendi (110 km). To the south is the Mare Humorum and to the north is Oceanus Procellarum

In the west is the terminal due to the phase of the Moon at the time. Because of this, craters west of Gassendi, are not visible, as is the crater Mersenius.
This image is a video processing in Registax.
I like the features observed in the crater Gassendi. We can see the mountains at the center of its floor, and the surrounding terrain.
