About the artwork

To human eyes, the Moon is colourless. Using painstaking data processing, it is possible to show the differences in colouration. To produce this photograph, taken in 2011, Bartosz Wojczynski captured 32,000 images using a telescope optimised for lunar imagery. The terrestrial atmosphere not being a stable optical medium, slight distortions appear. These are then piled up and accentuated on a computer using advanced image processing algorithms. Adding special scientific filters to the process, Bartosz Wojczynski reveals slight differences in composition that correspond to various types of matter on the lunar surface. 98% Waning Gibbous Moon was taken from the balcony of his apartment in a densely populated urban zone in southern Poland. The Moon and planets are among the most luminous objects in the sky and can easily be photographed, even in environments that experience significant light pollution. With modern equipment available to everyone it is now possible to create images that were impossible to take twenty years ago except by professional observatories.

“I take my photos from the balcony of my apartment in Piekary Śląskie, Poland… Solar System objects including the Moon, are absolutely not affected by light pollution due to their brightness - so for that type of astrophotography, there's no need to travel at all!”
