Wonderful Moon video Serenitatis-Tranquillitatis seas area through the telescope.

Certainly, in this video below are much to see. This is because here are many types of moon features such as seas, lakes, craters and mountains. For example, I never saw Menelaus crater (27 km.) in these shadows. It lies on the southwest edge of Mare Serenitatis and is immersed in a nearly total darkness. Only the imterior western wall is in sunlight.

      On the 'sharp tooth' as of a predator that comes between the two major seas Serenitatis and Tranquillitatis, there are many features, such as Montes Haemus more to root of the 'tooth', crater Menelaus, and at its left are the three lakes which are arranged in a triangle: Gaudii, Hiemalis and Lenitatis. They can be seen closer in the last photo of this article.

      Auwers crater (20 km), lies south-west of Menelaus. We can't go without mentioning Sinus Honoris, which is on the outside of the 'sharp tooth', nor the crater Julius Caesar (90 km.), which can be seen in the lower left corner of the video.
At the end of the 'sharp tooth' is Promotorium Archerusia, named after the promoters of the Black Sea on Earth. The 'tooth' seems to be heading towards to 'smash' the solitary crater Plinius (43 km.), which is located between the two seas, but it misses. In the right of Plinius, is a smaller crater, only 18 km, Dawes, wich is lying on the sea plateau too, and is surrounded by a higher albedo.
