Lunar captures with Skywatcher BK DOB14" Collapsible 355mm

All images have been taken with an Skywatcher BK DOB14" Collapsible 355mm @f/4.5 telescope
mounted on an
Skywatcher AZ EQ6 mount German Equatorial / Alt-Az dual mode. 
A Unibrain Fire-1 785 camera (Monochrome) or QHY5L-II(High QE!) - Monochrome cameras was used along with SupaSlim Filter Wheel.
A Televue 3x barlow was used to increase the effective focal length and consequent magnification. 
Image acquisition with Torsten Edelmann's Firecapture software or Fire-i™ Software

September 25, 2013 MEGA Dome Theophilus G.

Condition with medium seeing good transparency
Telescope SkyWatcher 14 inch @f/4.5, camera Unibrain Fire-i 785, filters Red, barlow 3X.

This structure near the area of the crater Theophilus G is likely to be a megadome.
At following image we can see my compare theory, that megadome has the same structure
and morphology of the Valentine dome.
http://www.lunar-captures.com//Domes_files/TheophilusG_Valentine_domes_Image1.jpg
At the next image I analyzed with a ACT react quick map tool the surface elevation
profiles as shown by LROC GLD100, as we see the measurements
we understand that we do have to do with Dome.
http://www.lunar-captures.com//Domes_files/130925_Dome_Theophilus3_Tar_Image2.jpg

Diameters
sample point 1 : 74.75 km
sample point 2 : 99.43 km
sample point 3 : 81.60 km

Mean average of Mega dome Theophilus G is 85.26 km. The Lunar domes are typically 5-15 km in diameter sometimes
a very large megadomes reach up to 70 km in width.
