Image of moon made by Belarusian astronomers gets into Cambridge textbook

An image made by Belarusian astronomers has appeared in the Cambridge textbook "Shoot the Moon". The photos were published in a book dedicated to the various methods of astronomical photography of the Earth satellite.

A look at the celestial body in 3D glasses is the uniqueness of the Belarusian images. A lot of shots from different angles were made to achieve that.

Yury Goryachko, amateur astronomer:
The photographs were taken using a telescope. This is a stereo photo, it has its own specifics. To shoot an object in stereo, you need to do it from two different points. We caught two moments when it was in such a position. A month later it turned into such a position again. And the two images were merged into one image.
