Supermoon 2018 captured on camera by Dr Shaun Atherton

This breathtaking image of the January 2018 Supermoon was created by stitching a together a series of 12 megapixel frames taken with a Canon EOS 450D DSLR mounted on the Loughborough Physics Department’s 16” Meade LX200-ACF telescope.

Many thanks to Loughborough physicist Dr Shaun Atherton for sharing it.
