Phases of the moon - The Lunar Phase cycle.
“Each individual moon image is a single frame from my SLR, shot with my 600mm refractor, 2xTC and some macro tubes, mounted on a camera tripod. The new moon, and the background is the full moon adjusted. For the new moon, very much faded, but I wanted to have a representation there. The background used an iterative resize process. The full size image is 23000 pixels square.
Thanks to the weather and other factors, this took about a year to capture all the individual images.”
Photo was taken on January 20, 2012 in Horsham, England, GB.
