"The Drifting Desert" by Andrew McCarthy
printed on C-Type Matt

The moon has inspired humanity for thousands of years. A source of scientific curiosity and artistic inspiration, it is what drew me into the world of astrophotography, and remains my most frequently captured subject. This composite image was captured usingf two telescopes and cameras, one to preserve this ethereal moment, and the other to capture lunar detail by shooting thousands of images in short succession at high magnification, and stacking them to reduce the effects of our turbulent atmosphere. The final image is a mosaic made of many tiles, which creates an image of a familiar object in significantly higher detail than traditional images produce.

The size indicated is the "leaf size", which will include a 1/2" white border for handling and framing.
