Andrew McCarthy, an astrophotographer who lives in the USA and known for his impressive photographs, took 100 thousand separate photographs of the Sun and created a visual feast of 230 megapixels.

Astrophotographer Andrew McCarthy, who attracted attention with the photographs he took while passing in front of the International Space Station (ISS), the Sun and the Moon, living in the state of California, USA, was surprised again.

McCarthy used a new ultra-sharp solar telescope in early April, stacking thousands of images to capture ‘breathtaking details’ of the Sun. It was stated that McCarthy had to take almost 100,000 separate sun photographs to capture these details.

The combination of the photos resulted in a 230-megapixel photo of the Sun. On October 6, 2020, McCarthy first wanted to capture the International Space Station passing between the Earth and the Sun, one with a white light filter and the other with a hydrogen-alpha sun. He stated that he used two binoculars attached to his telescope.
