On a fairly regular basis (but probably NOT monthly) I shall be offering a “Print of the Month” at a significantly reduced price.  This will be an A3 full colour, full-resolution print using HP Glossy 250g/m2 Advanced Photo Paper and the 6-colour HP designjet 130.  Each print will be signed and dated and will come in a protective polypropylene punched pouch.  Prints will then be packed in a robust cardboard poster packaging tube for shipping.  The Special Offer price is just £25 which includes postage and packing!!  This offer is only open to U.K. residents.

This Month’s “Print of the Month” is the 2-frame Sky 90/SXVF-M25C image of the Horsehead nebula and Belt of Orion region.

Please note that as this image is almost “square” there will be a largish white border on the long side of the paper, i.e. the image will take the maximum width of the A3 sheet, and this will also be the “length” of the image as well.

If you would like to order your March 2010 “Print of the Month” of the Horsehead nebula and Belt of Orion region – please e-mail sales@newforestobservatory.com to arrange your delivery.

I have just introduced a new print size for the deep-sky images.  You can now purchase A3 sized full-colour prints of any object you see on the NFO site.  Go to “Image Gallery”, “Purchase Images” for details.

Finally – the boss has decreed that it will be the Rosette nebula that graces the dining-room wall until Spring 2009, when it will be replaced by the Pleiades.  Sounds good to me 🙂

This is how a framed image of the Pleaides looks in the dining-room.  The boss reckons this will be the Summer image.

It is well-known that a builder never works on his own house.  Likewise, for some unknown reason, I have never mounted framed pictures of my images on the walls of my house – even though I have a dozen framed prints stacked on the floor in my study.  This Christmas break I finally decided things had to change and I have made a start by brightening up the pictureless dining room.  This will be followed by the bedroom and a spare piece of wall space on the top landing.  But to kick off, here is the new-look dining room.
