Lunar craters filmed through a telescope: Gassendi Letronne Billy. 3 craters.

These images taken by the astronomical telescope, we observe three distinct craters in a single frame: Gassendi (110 km) with the shape of the diamond ring, Letronne (119 km) because it resembles a horseshoe, and Billy (46 km ), which has dark floor at this stage, and so it is highlighted.

Craters mentioned here are located on the west side of the Moon, in a region of the northwestern Mare Humorum Basin.

These are frames from a video made off HD camcorder attached to the telescope.
