Sinus Iridum in darkness Video through telescope.

These video images, along with a picture processed in Registax, shows northern Moon area, specifically the northern part of the Gulf of Rainbows, or Sinus Iridum.

Golf is in shade at this stage, leaving just a dark bow to be noticed. Montes Jura mountains which form this sinus, are illuminated by the Sun, and on them we observe three craters scattered along this mountains called Foucault (23 km), Sharp (40 km) and Sharp B (21 km) (from right to left).
