Theophilus crater should be carefully explored

These images are related with Theophilus, Cyrillus and Catharina, presented in another article: Registax: Theophilus and Cyrillus: astronomical images through the telescope.  These are video captures from the video through my telescope.
Theophilus crater displays a rich diversity of mineralogical variations in its central peaks, walls and floor, being closely related to melting from the impact, both, inside and out the crater.
Theophilus is a crater that should be analyzed in detail, with great attention, because the walls with it's terraces can make an interesting study about the composition of lunar soil, because the impact that formed him, threw out several elements that should be known.
The above images are edited in FastStone. The darker ones are unedited.
