"Abell 74 is an ancient and exceedingly faint planetary nebula in the constellation Vulpecula. I amassed 72 hours of usable narrowband data for this image (plus over three hours of RGB for the stars). It is also known as PK 72.7 -17.1, is approximately 2500 light years from earth, and its diameter spans approximately 15 light years."

MOAB Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 gsm paper, acid free. From the maker's website: “Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 transforms an image into life like, almost 3D quality.”
Recommended Care: Treat you print with care until it has been mounted and or framed. Metallic prints will look best in good lighting. If you receive your print and aren't seeing the colors and details pop, try taking the print into a different room with better lighting. If you'd like to frame your metallic print, avoid any glazing as this addition may extinguish the metallic pop.
Recommended Use: One of the finest renditions of Abell 74 ever processed, this metallic paper print is a top-quality gift for your Dobsonian-digging dad, Takahashi-toting teen, or Baader-brandishing boyfriend.
