The 8,000 individual exposures that form the image were shot over a period of four days from the Eiffel Tower-like Tokyo Tower. Photographer Jeffrey martin used a Canon 7D on a motorized tripod controlled by a laptop that could move it in uniform incremental steps. Taking the picture was actually the easy part. Editing it all together required the real effort. Using a computer with 192GB of RAM, it took Martin four months to assemble the final massive image.
