"Nursery of the Heavens" by Andrew McCarthy
Available on Metal or Archival Rag paper. Prints are digitally signed and only a limited number of each size and material will be manufactured.
This is a detailed shot of the Lagoon Nebula (Messier 8), captured using an 8" telescope and narrowband filters, to isolate the burning gasses created by this stellar nursery in the heart of our galaxy. This image uses a unique color palette I apply, which is derivative of the famous "Hubble Palette" used to process nebula photos, but with a twist to find more color within the folds of gas in these deep space objects. The Lagoon Nebula is one of the brightest deep space objects in the sky, and easily visible to the naked eye from dark skies.
For paper prints, the size indicated is the "leaf size", which will include a 1" white border for handling and framing. The frame is a molded wood with acrylic cover, including a simple white matting.
Metal prints are fabricated using a proprietary printing process that boasts a non-reflective surface that allows for the deepest display of color and contrast available for print. The image is printed right to the edge of the material.
