Video by telescope Between Plato and Sinus Iridium through a telescope

In this 3:51 minute long video of the North of the Moon, is presented a region called Sinus Iridium. The image is upside down as seen through the telescope.
Bay of Rainbows, or Sinus Iridium, consists of Montes Jura mountains, forming a bay. It is actually the remnants of the walls of a large crater.
 Isolated and elongated mountain from Mare Imbrium, is Montes Rectum.
On Imbrium sea are visible two different colour shades that divides the sea in two. This highlights shows in fact that there are two types of soil found in this area.
Helicon and Le Verrier are two isolated craters located "offshore", visible in the region where the lunar surface color is darker.
