Astronomical telescope video captures of lunar craters: Goldschmidt and Anaxagoras

Here is the area north of the Moon with well known craters like Goldschmidt and Anaxagoras (120/51 km) in most images located in the center, and Scoresby (56 km).

Is the "quiet" side of the Moon, not like southern emisphere that is heavily bombed and diverse. Nothing new in this lunar phase. I got this landscape in a similar light on other times. However, this area remains of particular interest to me in observing through my astronomical telescope.

Distance: 394.960 km
