Astrophotographer Andrew McCarthy took 150,000 photos to put together this 300-Megapixel picture of the sun. He titled “Fire and Fusion” 300-megapixel photo highlights the swirling, feathery surface of the Sun. Using a modified telescope, McCarthy was able to take his most detailed photo yet of the Sun. The result is a feast for the eyes. Solar flares and sunspots are visible, showing just how chaotic this ball of plasma really is. For McCarthy, the Sun is a constant source of inspiration.
Andrew assembled a powerful telescope that has allowed him to photograph the Sun with incredible details. The fiery glow of the Sun is ever-present and the high-quality images that McCarthy captures mean that we can really get into the fine details of this dwarf star.
Andrew was able to capture this photo right from his backyard in Arizona. In fact, all the images he used to compose the photo were taken in one day. As always, he needed to be patient and make sure that the atmosphere stabilized prior to shooting. Luckily, he got a clear view at the end of November to make this photo a reality.
