Now That Is A Super Moon! Images Made Of 32,000 Photographs Shows Lunar Surface In Brilliant Detail

Last week, amateur Polish photographer Bartosz Wojczyński combined an amazing 32,000 images to create a super high-resolution picture of the moon. It took only 28 minutes to take the photos from his balcony in Piekary Śląskie, but the total file size for the photos was a whopping 73.5 gigabytes. Wojczyński spent 5-6 hours combining the images.

Moon photography is an old art. John William Draper was the first person to take a picture of the full moon, 175 years ago. While Wojczyński spent $3500 on his equipment, Draper used a simple daguerreotype camera to capture his subject. You can compare Draper’s photo with Wojczyński’s photo to see how far we’ve come.

And while Draper’s photo was black and white, Wojczyński used advanced image acquisition and processing techniques to color the photo. He told PetaPixel that he had to map violet and infrared images of the moon to blue and red channels in the final shot.
