Deadmau5 is a good photographer, apparently.
Joel Zimmerman, known to millions as Deadmau5, is not your average electronic music producer. In fact, Zimmerman seems to simply be a fan of technology. He’s amassed quite a collection of new and antique recording equipment in his state-of-the-art recording studio at his new state-of-the-art mansion in Canada. He doesn’t just own a crazy looking fast car like a Nian Cat-themed Lamborghini Huracan , or murdered out McClaren P1, he owns an actual race car. And, he doesn’t just do some occasional gaming. He enters battles. Skateboarder? No way. Zimmerman rides a Segway with tank tracks.
But now the EDM purveyor has added a new title to his already lengthy resume—celestial photographer.
Zimmeran fired up his new Celestron telescope, affixed his Canon camera to it and tinkered until he got what he wanted—an incredible close-up photo of the moon. Below, follow his progression.
What’s next? Maybe he’ll build a full-on observatory with satellite-tracking technology in his backyard. He could put it next to his satanic fire pit.
You’ll find a high-res version of his moon close-up here.
