Video Pallas Murchison craters by telescope

Sinus Medii, translation Central Gulf, is 350 km in diameter with an area of 52,000 square kilometers. It's a irregular shaped mare, located near the center of the lunar disk, and links to Mare Vaporum, north of Sinus Medii.
 Around Triesnecker crater (26 km) on north and south, stretches beautiful rilles over Sinus Medii. Rimae Triesnecker consists of several linear rilles that come together to create the most beautiful valley networks on the Moon, if measured from end to end, they would have a total length of approx. 1,000 km.

North of Sinus Medii, the eroded craters Pallas (50 km) and Murchison (58 km) forms a duo. On the opposite side of the Sinus Medii is Rhaeticus crater (45 km).

Video is upside down, as seen through the telescope.
