This photograph of The Moon was imaged in small sections through a ED80 refracting telescope. The resulting photographs were then carefuly digitally stitched together to form this very high resolution and highly detailed image of a waxing crescent Moon. Jamie Cooper is an astrophotographer who travels extensively to capture phenomena such as comets, Northern Lights and eclipses. His high resolution planetary photography has contributed to scientific research and he has been featured on the BBC and in specialised astronomy magazines from around the world.
