The Cosmic Heart is one of the most beautiful examples of emission nebulae in which glowing ionized hydrogen sculpts blood-red, unimaginably beautiful and at the same time dramatic shapes.
The Heart Nebula, cataloged IC 1805, lies about 7,500 light-years from Earth and lies in the Perseus Arm of the Galaxy in the constellation Cassiopeia. It was discovered by William Herschel in 1787. It is an emission nebula showing glowing ionized hydrogen and darker regions of molecular dust.
The brightest part of this nebula (the object in the lower right corner of the image) is separately classified as NGC 896, as it was the first part of the nebula to be discovered by Herschel. The nebula’s intense red color and its dramatic shape are created by strong radiation from a small group of stars near the nebula’s center. This open star cluster known as Melotte 15 contains several bright stars almost 50 times that of our sun.

REMASTERED VERSION OF THE OLD ICONIC NASA MASTERPIECES
The presented photograph was built on the raw data from the NASA mission. Using the latest technology based on Artificial Intelligence (neural networks and machine learning), I was able to remove the very large grain of the original images and reconstruct many details that were necessary to obtain high-quality large format Fine-Art prints (printed on Epson UltraChrome HDX using 11 colors and 2880 dpi). In addition, a new color was created to give a sense of how pictures were taken today.
FINE ART (GICLÉE) HYPER-QUALITY PRINT
The artwork is ideal for demanding eyes looking for a dimension of real art in posters and wanting to own something really unique. The print is created on special premium papers meant for gallery use in the highest possible quality with a broader color palette (Epson UltraChrome Pro12) in our private print studio. The entire process of print and production is carried out by our Print Master personally which guarantees quality of presentation unmatched by any other method. The most advanced print technology combined with prestigious highest quality papers (archival/gallery standard) allow for outstanding durability of the photograph which may reach as many as several hundreds of years (according to Wilhelm Imaging Research).
The product is delivered without frames – we recommend e.g. Ikea frames (price/quality). The poster requires great care while framing. Durable pigments are susceptible to mechanical damage and fingerprints.
HIGH-QUALITY GICLÉE POSTER
The poster is printed on-demand in a limited series (not mass production) and it is meant for those who aren’t looking for the artistic (collectible) value of the Fine Artwork. It is printed on a special poster paper of the highest possible quality with a broadened color palette (Epson UltraChrome HDX and Pro) in our private print studio. You should not confuse the quality known from cheap mass-produced posters.
