Video by telescope. Plinius and the surrounding seas

Images are upside down, as seen through the telescope.
Telescope spins in the area between Mare Serenitatis and Mare Tranquillitatis, and is highlighted especially Plinius crater that lies on the border between the two large Mares. In this film there are craters like Dawes, 18 km, where in the video is located southwest of Plinius, Menelaus of 27 km, and Julius Caesar 90 km, at the top of the screen. Promotorium Archerusia is the white portion forming a "horn" and mountain formations like Montes Haemus.

Plinius, 43 km, located at 5.4 N, 23.7 E, dated from Erathostenian era, is a complex crater with more central mountains, whose appearance changes considerably in different lighting conditions.
