Noel Carboni is currently assembling the NFO Spring mega project of 2010.
This is a massive mosaic of the Virgo/Coma galaxy cluster region centred on the famous Markarian Chain of galaxies. This mosaic is created from a number of frames taken with both the Sky 90 and Hyperstar III telescopes both using the SXVF-M25C one-shot colour camera, and the image reveals many hundreds of galaxies.
I shall be creating just a very few HUGE prints measuring some 5 feet in height and 6-7 feet in length which will be available for purchase. These will be extremely expensive to acquire (sorry), but they are totally unique high-resolution prints specifically designed for the corporate environment and with an extremely limited print run of just 25 prints!
Stay tuned to the New Forest Observatory blog to keep up to date with this, our most ambitious project to-date. If you would like to pre-order your massive “Galaxy Wall” print for your institution then please mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information – but please be quick, with only 25 prints in total, they will soon be snapped up!
