Large print out of the Cygnus nebulae

A framed photograph of the Cygnus Nebulae and my beautiful wife, Anna, as a scale.

The size of the picture is 100 x 170cm (39,4 x 67 inch). It has been printed on acid free premium satin photo paper with a HP Z3200, 12 color, photo printer. I'm very happy with the quality of the print. Original file is so large and detailed, that the image is very sharp and all the stars are absolute pinpoints from edge to edge. I have calculated, that I can print out a sharp copy at size of about 3 x 5m, if I want!

I found the frame, seen in the picture, from a local Framing shop, it's an old, late 1800, gilded wooden frame. The print is then made to match to sizes of the frame. The result looks like an old Baroque painting.

Original image, in the picture above, can be found here with technical details:

The frame and framing are bought from Taide ja Kehys Jokela.
The print job is done by the Artwall.

Yes, that's exactly how it appears at first blink: baroque, olde worlde art. This is a most priceless shot suitable for the framing.
