This 230 megapixel image made up from 100,000 pictures, is the ‘clearest ever photo of the Sun.’
Photographer Andrew McCarthy took 100,000 photos of the Sun, that combined they created a stunning 230 megapixel photograph of our star.
“Yesterday afternoon I took my clearest photo of the sun, ever. The final image was over 230 megapixels. This was done by shooting over 100k individual images to build a massive mosaic of the solar chromosphere while simultaneously defeating the atmosphere by stacking so many frames.”
“I processed this one a little differently than past shots, hoping to capture the spirit of how it looks through a solar telescope. The difference is you can’t see stars, they were added in processing as an aesthetic choice.”
