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. 

Every so often the moon passes right through Earth's shadow. When this happens, the moon is dimmed as the large circular shadow creeps across its surface. When completely obscured, the moon glows with a dull red, which is the reflected light from sunsets around the entire Earth. This is also one of the best times to capture the surrounding stars, as ordinarily the glow of the moon defeats the relatively faint stellar backdrop. 

This composite image of a total Lunar Eclipse was captured 11/8/22 in the wee hours of the morning, and was captured using two telescopes and two cameras, to maximize detail and color depth. The images were aligned based on the shadow of the Earth, to clearly demonstrate the size and shape of our planet. 

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.
