We have attached all of them in this article and let’s just take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the moon in these pictures.
The Photographer stacked thousands of moon pictures together used it to show the absolute clarity in these pictures. The original shots were taken using an ASI1600MM and an edgeHD 800. The presence of surface clarity in these pictures makes it look phenomenal.
The pictures are captured by the photographer between the light and dark side of the moon that is known as the terminator.
McCarthy said, “From two weeks of images of the waxing moon, I took the section of the picture that has the most contrast (right before the lunar terminator where shadows are the longest), aligned, and blended them to show the rich texture across the entire surface.
This was exhausting to say the least, namely because the moon doesn’t line up the day over day, so each image had to be mapped to a 3D sphere and adjusted to make sure each image aligned.”
