Good evening guys n gals, wifey person is re-decorating the living room at the min, and with me showing her hubble pics of planets and nebula over the yrs, she has requested I try and get a large print of a nebula for one of the walls. Any good suppliers about the uk? Cheers peeps. And would these clouds ever clear . Got a new skyliner 200p for crimbo n had it out twice...upgraded from a 130... Holy bejusus are they trick or what.

How big are you talking? There is a book out which consists purely of removeable prints taken by Hubble. All the usual suspects in there.....but think it was only about A3 size. Not sure if that is big enough for your needs?

You can get prints (with or without frames and other knobs on) of the astronomy photo of the year winners from Greenwich Observatory

Although to be honest i prefered the pics they had of the 2011 competition and i don't think that they do them anymore. There are loads of great DSO prints at the Deep Sky Colours website; my favourite is this long exposure of Orion which i may well purchase when i (finally) get round to doing some decorating of my own :tongue:

SGL's highly talented Tom O'Donoghue (TomO'D on here) is a professional astrophotographer who has exhibitions of his work and sells lovely high quality prints to the public. To my mind these have far more impact than 'seen before' images from Hubble etc. Above all Tom's a widefield specialist who builds up exquisite mosaics of huge swathes of sky at a resolution rarely, if ever, seen before. He has spent some time going into how to get good quality large format prints made. I'll alert him to this thread. I don't pretend to be a totally independent party here since Tom and I are friends who sometimes collaborate on projects but my preceding comments are totally sincere.
