Spectacular Picture Of The Moon.
You won’t want to miss seeing Andrew McCarthy’s stunning photographs of the first quarter Moon of 2020, just in case you missed it.
A Moon enthusiast (previously) has captured Earth’s only natural satellite in one of his most detailed images to date. Using 100,000 photos combined, it was possible to see past the fuzziness of our “turbulent atmosphere” and see our neighbors’ true faces.
The spectacular images shared by McCarthy display shadows, volcanoes, crevices, and lava flows in all their glory. A variation in the composition of the Moon reveals the Moon’s colors as well.
“This first quarter Moon also is one of the best for showing crater detail,” explains McCarthy on his Instagram, “as the long shadows [along] the terminator really make the details pop”.
The largest and brightest object in our night sky appeared sharper than ever before.
Here’s an amazing picture of the moon. Andrew McCarthy created it by capturing and combining 50,000 photos.
The Sacramento, California-based McCarthy shot the photos using two cameras. His Sony a7 II mirrorless camera and his ZWO ASI224MC (a $250 astro camera).
The lit side of the moon was processed using 25 ’tiles’ that were stitched together in Photoshop. “Each ’tile’ was a stack of the best 50% of 2000 images captured with the ZWO.”
