Product details

Astronomy Photographer of the Year is an annual competition featuring the world’s greatest space photography. Photographers from across the globe compete to take home the prestigious title.

"Our team of amateur astronomers made a surprising discovery – a huge plasma arc next to the Andromeda Galaxy (M31). The arc has an extension of about 1.5 x 0.45 degrees, is only 1.2 degrees away from the centre of M31 and is located southeast of the main body of the galaxy. Scientists are now investigating the newly discovered giant in a transnational collaboration. It could be the largest such structure nearest to us in the Universe. The Andromeda Galaxy is the closest spiral galaxy to the Milky Way. It is undoubtedly one of the most photographed deep-sky objects." Marcel Drechsler, Xavier Strottner, Yann Sainty

Our Custom Prints and frames are all handmade to the highest standards. As each Custom Print and frame is made to your required specification, they take a little longer to prepare. Custom Prints are printed on sustainable, matt 250gsm conservation digital paper. Unframed prints are carefully rolled with acid free tissue paper inside a sturdy cardboard tube. Frames are made in the UK from sustainably-sourced woods.

Custom Prints (those which are customised by choosing a size and frame) are made to order and therefore take a little longer than our standard fulfilment times. Please read our Delivery and Returns page for our latest information about UK and international shipping. 

Please check the size and frame options carefully so that you are happy as once ordered we will be unable to change. 

Every purchase supports the work of Royal Museums Greenwich.
