The massive Andromeda Galaxy is the closest spiral galaxy to our own, approximately 2.5 million LY away. It contains in the region of 1 trillion stars. The light took at least 2.5 million years to reach my camera.
Andromeda and the Milky Way are part of a group of about 45 galaxies making a small cluster. The largest is Andromeda followed by the Milky Way. Andromeda has an estimated one trillion stars and a diameter of over 200,000 LY. This makes it more than double the size of our own galaxy. In this image, there are two other galaxies, the two blobs we see, ‘friends’. These are gravitationally linked to Andromeda. The larger one of these satellite galaxies is Messier 110 and the smaller one Messier 32.

The images are printed on aluminium to give a stunning vivid piece of art.
The printing process is known as 'Chromaluxe' uses a dye sublimation process to transfer the image under heat and pressure to the specially prepared surface of the aluminium - giving high gloss finish in high resolution with deep rich colours!
It's a magnificent piece of art which will last generations! The archival inks and glossy finish shows off these deep space images in the highest quality.
As with the acrylic pieces these are frameless - bringing that modern feel with clean lines. They come with a simple hanging system on the back ready to put on the wall straight from the box!
They are available in the same sizes as the acrylic pieces - 18" 32" and 48" widths, with editions of 25, 15 and 5 respectively.
They cost slightly less to manufacture than the acrylic pieces so retail at prices below the acrylic.
Oh and one other thing- they can be hung outside too!
