Most beautiful crater on the Moon Gassendi telescope images

Above are video captures made ​​in Sony Vegas. Below are video captures made ​​in Splash Player.

     Gassendi (110 km.), is probably the most ancient crater on the Moon. It is a magnificent crater, which dominates the north of Mare Humorum. Much of the crater overlaps the north of  Mare Humorum, where it narrows and Gassendi's south wall is almost submerged.

     Gassendi's floor is a complex of mountains, hills and ditches. The group of three large central mountains, is surrounded by Rima Gassendi, who cut most of the crater floor, especially at east of the central peaks. The most important Rilles (ditches), is starting from the east of the highest central peak, and tilts toward the eastern crater wall. Between these grooves are seen two small but notable craters that go along them. United, the largest of Rima Gassendi grooves, are spanning for more than 300 km.

Gassendi A (33 km), a crater with sharp edges, is superimposed on the northern edge of Gassendi. A south ridge of this crater, lies on the floor of Gassendi, causing a prominent triangular shadow.
      The video of these great images, can be found here: Video by telescope Gassendi crater in March 2012 .
