World Record Lunar Mosaic for Charity

On April 4th 2009, a group of us amateurs met up at the home of legendary astronomy broadcaster and
author Sir Patrick Moore, to set about the task of producing the largest ground-based digital Lunar mosaic.
Other imagers based around the south east of England also contributed and, despite the British weather
doing its best to throw a spanner in the works, the image was successfully completed.

The final image is nearly 88MP in size and has been compiled from 288 separate images.
The record was officially ratified by Guinness in an event at Patrick's home on July 11th.

Below are a few photos of the event.
