See the world’s largest ground-based lunar image mosaic

lunarhighresThis image has been verified by Guinness World Records as setting a new record for the world’s largest ground-based lunar image mosaic. It contains 288 separate high resolution panes, painstakingly stitched and matched together to form a seamless image. All the panes were shot during a single night to ensure that the Moon is at the same phase across the image, and despite difficult conditions on the night, the angular (detail) resolution is, as you can see by zooming in, incredibly high.
