NEW IMAGE – Introducing the Swan

The Swan

I have always wanted to image the Swan Nebula as it is a beautiful area of nebulosity. The challenge is that it never rises high in the sky at the latitude of my telescope so I only get a few hours each night. However, I used every hour possible to capture the object and by late June I had enough data to start processing.

I hope you agree it was all worth the hard work and patience! It will look stunning in both Frameless Acrylic and Backlit – it can really transform a room.

It is now available too – AND don’t forget all images have a 15% discount offer in July – including The Swan. Simply use the code julyoffer on check-out.

Here is a little about The Swan.

Messier 17, also known as the Omega or Swan Nebula, is one of the largest star-forming regions in our galaxy. It is located in the constellation Sagittarius, which is 5,500 light-years away from Earth, and contains one of the youngest star clusters in the Milky Way at only 1 million years old.
