Video by telescope Gassendi crater in March 2012

This is a video through the telescope with the 'diamond ring' lunar crater Gassendi, in March 2012. It is one of several other videos of this crater. Other videos from 2010 and 2011 can be viewed here:

 In this clip, the image is clear and mountainous region that lies to the north (image is inverted), shows features with very fine details and distinctive.
Gassendi crater is hunted by many amateur astronomers because it is large, 110 km diameter, and presents those rilles on his floor, which in clear weather, are wonderful to look through a telescope. Gassendi A , 33 km, is the 'diamond' of the big 'ring'.

Gassendi's depth to the floor, is measuring 1.9 kilometers, shallow compared to its size. You could say that in the past, lava covering the crater floorwas drained from Mare Humorum, on wich the crater lies, due to low height of the crater rim, but it turned out that is not so, from the high-resolution images obtained from space missions of NASA.
