Purchase Images

We are pleased to be able to offer you the chance to own copies of our deep-sky images.  The images that you purchase will be produced with the same skill and to the same level of quality that we used to produce the images for all our exhibitions – please check the “Exhibitions” category to see where the NFO has exhibited deep-sky images.

The large framed images look absolutely stunning in the modern home, the (high-tech) corporate office, the Board room, Hotel reception areas, and Conference venues.  NFO framed images are on customers’ walls as far separated as Australia, Saudi Arabia, Seattle and Sri Lanka!

If you are interested in purchasing an image or have any questions, please read the sections below and contact us at greg@newforestobservatory.com

Print Sizes

There are five standard sizes of print:

  • Large Size  ( approximately 56 cm x 80 cm )
  • Two-frame, belt & Horsehead, Veil, NGC7000/Pelican ( approximately 60cm x 56cm )
  • Medium Size ( approximately 46 cm x 63 cm )
  • A3 size ( approximately 40 cm x 28.5 cm )
  • A4 size ( approximately 28 cm x 19.5 cm )

For the Large prints the height is 23″ but the width may vary according to the subject.  Typically the width is 32″.  For medium prints the height is 18.5″ and again the width may vary according to the subject, but it is typically 25″.

If you would like a smaller or custom print size other than those shown above then please contact us as we are happy to discuss any printing requirements you might have.

The type of setup used to acquire the image will determine the maximum size it can be printed.  The available combinations are shown below, all images are available in A3 or A4 size:

Technique Medium Large Custom
Sky90/SXVF-M25C Yes Yes Yes
Hyperstar Mosaics Yes Yes Yes
Hyperstar Single Frame Yes No Yes ((Custom size can be no larger than 46 cm x 63cm))

Hyperstar Single Frame as referred to above is for the original Hyperstar unit (the one that was used with the small SXV-H9C camera).  Prints in Large, Medium and Custom sizes are all supported by single frame images from the Hyperstar III and SXVF-M25C camera.

The final size of individual prints may vary slightly from the above dimensions depending on the image.  By this we mean that we will reduce the final printed size of the image to get the best possible combination of size and quality.

Please note: All A1, A2, and two-frame prints, whether framed or not are signed, dated and numbered with a print run limit of 250 prints.  A3 and A4 prints are signed and year dated but there is no print run limit for these sizes.

Framed Prints

Professionally-framed prints of all the images on this site are also available.  The 100 cm x 80 cm Aluminium frame accepts both Large and Medium prints and incorporates a U.V. absorbing protective glass, an 80cm x 80cm frame is used for the two-frame prints.

All Large, Medium, and two-frame prints are signed, dated and numbered with a U.K. print run limit of 250.  Please note there is no print run limit for A3 or A4 prints and these are signed and year dated only.

Custom sized framed prints are available in the U.K. signed by Greg Parker but they will not be part of a numbered run.  If you require a custom size framed image then please contact us.

To get an idea just how striking a framed print would look in your home, office, hotel – take a look at the framed Pleiades print in the NFO dining-room :)
