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.
"This 78% Moon is blended with a previous Full Moon to create a composite giving the effect of a 3D sphere. This is only possible due to extremely favourable libration between the two images. The libration is the tilt of the Moon which varies more than you would think and makes it very difficult to find two images that line up properly. There are many images similar to this out there, but upon closer inspection, they often have duplicated features and are not as well matched. The image is a 22-panel mosaic. Each panel is 400 frames stacked and manually stitched together." Rich Addis
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.
