The Great Eruption in the constellation of Carina

A Fine Art photography of the cosmos printed on the highest quality gallery paper and with longevity reaching hundreds of years. It shows a stellar system Eta Carinae located around 7,500 light-years distant in the constellation Carina.

In 1827 Burchell specifically noted Eta Carinae’s unusual brightness at 1st magnitude, and was the first to suspect that it varied in brightness. John Herschel made a detailed series of accurate measurements in the 1830s showing that Eta Carinae consistently shone around magnitude 1.4 until November 1837. On the evening of December 16, 1837, Herschel was astonished to see that it had brightened to slightly outshine Rigel. This event marked the beginning of a roughly 18-year period known as the Great Eruption.

 

Eta Carinae is probably the greatest treasure of the southern sky. It is also the first object on which you will direct your telescopes if you want to admire its beauty. Moreover, to see the surrounding nebula, you do not really need any equipment. Under good conditions, it is visible to the naked eye.

The star located 7,700 light-years from Earth is actually a stellar system composed of at least two components. Their mutually reinforced glow is millions of times brighter than our Sun and is primarily responsible for lighting up the surrounding matter. It is finally one of the most beautiful nebulas you can observe. It’s called Carina. Like other objects of this type, it is an active star-forming region.

It is difficult to find a more diverse object to observe in the sky. You will find reflection, emission, dark, dust, and other nebulae in it. All this can be seen on my photograph taken using the multi-spectral technique (gathering light emitted by ionized gases: oxygen, hydrogen and sulfur).

This picture cost me a lot. 12 thousand kilometers and 72 hours of travel (South Africa). 3 nights struggle to collect photons. 15 hours of raw material processing. The result is the photo which I undoubtedly point to as the groundbreaking and best astrophotograph of my decade-long career. In this field, achieving the level of the image we dreamed up is extremely difficult. This time when I look at the picture I have the impression it is exactly what I wanted to do.

When working with narrowband filters, then trying to balance them in a graphical application, there is this magical moment when the monochrome picture blossoms with a color gamut. This is the moment in which the author himself cannot admire enough the scale of the beauty of cosmic creation. Because we do not the ones who create it. Modestly we only record and interpret what we see.

The work, however, is not ours.

 

Art-gallery quality without compromise

This fine art is printed at my home print studio in the highest possible quality with an expanded color gamut (Epson UltraChrome HDX 11 base colors) on a specially preselected paper. I only use print media recommended by world-class photographers, mainly Epson Signature Worth series (Fine-Art Photography: Exhibition Fiber; Poster: Premium Luster Photo Paper), which provide a very inspiring experience both aesthetic and tactile. The entire printing and production process is carried out by me personally. This guarantees the quality of presentation unattainable for other printing methods. This is the level found in the most prestigious photographic art galleries in the world. You will be delighted – I promise.

The rich blacks combined with the incredible color fidelity reinforces the aesthetics of the dark and deep cosmos in my photographs. Additionally, the Signature Worth and Legacy paper surface allows viewers to experience every detail in the prints.

 

 

A masterpiece that will last for many generations

The most advanced printing technology (created in Japan by Epson) which I decided to use, combined with special, highest quality archival papers, provide for the remarkable durability of these printed photographs. These Fine Art prints will survive many generations on your wall. According to the prestigious Wilhelm Imaging Research organization, the longevity of such prints reaches even several hundred years (Poster variant up to 175 years when it’s kept behind the UV glass). In order to reflect my commitment and personal relationship with photography, each copy of Fine-Art Photography is personally signed by me, which complements the unique character.

Delivery

The Fine Art print is delivered in a secure container in the form of a tube. All photopaper prints will be rolled in acid free tissue, shipped in heavy duty cardboard document tubes. This guarantees its safety and preserves the quality of prints during transport to your home.

This description is not going to be long. Otherwise, it will be very short. Just try to imagine that every yellow dot you will be able to count on my picture is… in fact - the star - exactly like our Sun. It’s purely mind-blowing. The Tarantula Nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud

The happiest astrophotography fan in the city :) This is my idol from the past @tvn24.pl - now the editor-in-chief @businessinsider with The Creation of Cosmos fine-art print from Astrography.com.#astrophotography #astroporn #astrography #cosmos #nightphotography
The Pelican Nebula (IC 5070) is a large area of emission nebula in the constellation Cygnus, close to Deneb, and separated by a molecular cloud filled with dark dust from its brighter, larger neighbor, the North America Nebula.
.
The Pelican is much studied because it has a highly active mix of star formation and evolving gas clouds. The light from young energetic stars is slowly heating cold gas and causing an ionization front to gradually advance outward. Particularly dense filaments of cold gas are seen to still remain.
.
Millions of years from now this nebula might no longer be known as the Pelican, as the balance and placement of stars and gas will leave something that appears completely different.
.
I took the picture in my astronomical observatory near Warsaw (the capital city of Poland, EU).
