Manilius and Menelaus craters on the moon-images through the telescope

Photographer: Victor Lupu
Optics: Celestron C8-Newtonian telescope, plossl 20mm, 2x Barlow
Mount: CG5 (EQ5)
Device: Sony CX105 at 6x optical zoom
Total Magnification: 600x
Filter: no
Date: 12/05/2011
Location: Baia Mare, Romania
Processing: FastStone Image Viewer, Video captures

Manilius is a 39 km diameter crater and 3.1 km in depth, and Menelaus is 27 km in diameter and 3 km in depth.
In pictures through the telescope above, these craters are different than other posts because they are  not surrounded by gray, but color. The Moon, almost always when I film, at about 800x or more magnification, it turns gray, but at a smaller magnification the Moon has color, as in this post.
In the first two photos above are the north of Apenninus mountains and the left is Mare Serenitatis In the next two photos it is crater Manilius crater and in the next  two is Menelaus.
The images below are for guidance and are older.
