Schickard crater in the light (Video through telescope)

This short clip with my camera attached to the telescope, shows crater Schickard, filmed in an not too good atmosphere, but from the half until the final part of the clip, we see much colors of this huge crater, and the floor which was flooded by lava. On the floor there is a white spot, and the north and south of the crater interior, the floor is dark.

Schickard, is the largest crater on the south-west of the moon, with 227 km diameter. Schiller, a crater of 179x71 km. which is further south, and has an elongated shape, is the second one.
