"Fusion of Helios" by Andrew McCarthy and Jason Guenzel

The aptly named "Fusion of Helios" is a fusion from the minds of two astrophotographers, Andrew McCarthy and Jason Guenzel. Using a custom-modified hydrogen alpha solar telescope, the combined data from over 90,000 individual images was jointly processed to reveal the layers of intricate details within the solar chromosphere. A geometrically altered image of the 2017 eclipse as an artistic element in this composition to display an otherwise invisible structure. Great care was taken to align the two atmospheric layers in a scientifically plausible way using NASA's SOHO data as a reference.

The final image is the most detailed and dynamic full image of our star either photographer has ever created. A blend of science and art, this image is a one-of-a kind astrophoto, as the ever-changing sun will never quite look like this again. 

The size indicated is the "leaf size", which will include a 1/2" white border for handling and framing. Aluminum is printed to the edge of the material. Sorry, the fine art print is available unframed only.
