The story

I captured this image from Pinnacles National Park, and before I continued working on my “large” project at the time, I took about 40 minutes of data on comet C/2016 R2 as it was cruising by the Hyades star cluster. I then integrated that image with data I had from a previous mosaic I did of this area back in 2013, to complete the whole FOV in the image. The big orange star is Aldebaran. The comet displays a distinctive blue color, although its tip is slowly getting greener.

Fuji Pearl paper is a super high gloss finish, archival paper. It has a better gloss than glossy photo paper, thicker paper and it contains pigments and other materials that give purer whites and sharper, better defined highlights. We ship our prints flat, not rolled, regardless of the size.

Metal prints are a modern and visually striking way to display photographs. The printing process involves infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets, resulting in vibrant and durable prints with a unique, high-gloss finish. Metal prints are always shipped ready to hang.
