Photographer Captures Full Sequence of Longest Partial Eclipse in Over 500 Years

Andrew McCarthy is a passionate astrophotographer who captures the most amazing pictures of the sky.
His latest work features the longest partial lunar eclipse of the century and it is a stunning shot for which he stayed up until 4 a.m. and shot thousands of images to create the final collage. The result is a detailed image showcasing the phases of a lunar eclipse and a shot that could be exhibited in any art museum.
McCarthy prepared months in advance for this shot, carefully planning the moment to make sure he won’t miss the lunar eclipse. He was happy to be in the right place at the right time, and be able to capture all the phases of the eclipse to create the final shadowed sphere image.
McCarthy used a three-camera setup installed in his backyard, in Arizona and used HDR techniques to capture the clearest and most detailed image. After taking thousands of shots from different angles, he patched them together digitally to create the final image and offer a clear view
of the moon during an eclipse.
