The print will use an archival rag paper (as opposed to the C-type matte with my other prints) and will include a certificate of authenticity. 

My deepest dive into the Andromeda galaxy, "Intergalactic Wonders" was created using over 30 hours of exposures captured during moon phases that allowed for the darkest skies. The exposure time coupled with dark skies allowed me to reveal much more detail on our galactic neighbor, with features that feel so close you could touch them (despite this object being 2.5 MILLION light years away.) Those pink objects within the galaxy are actually nebulae, giving birth to new stars to add to this galaxy's already impressive 1 TRILLION. 

For those of you interested, the raw data from this shot has been uploaded to my dropbox associated with my patreon account, so you too can learn how these images go from unprocessed data to a final image, an important part of learning astrophotography. 

The sizes indicated is the "leaf" size, the unframed print includes a small white border for handling and framing, and the framed print will be slightly larger due to the thickness of the frame and include a small matting.
