Recently, astronomer Andrew McCarthy published a stunning photo of the Moon that he believes to be his most detailed work to date. Over 280,000 individual photographs taken with two telescopes were combined to create the breathtaking image, which is larger than one gigapixel.
McCarthy posted the image on social media and urged viewers to zoom in for a unique experience. “I have used two telescopes and more than 280,000 individual photos to capture my most detailed image of the Moon,” he wrote in his tweet.
The image is over a gigapixel in size in its entirety. You won’t be disappointed, I assure you, when you zoom in on this one.
