This poster is really cool. I have it hanging up in my college dorm room, and my high school physics teacher had a similar poster hanging in his class room. The poster is of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, which is a photo the Hubble Space Telescope took. The area of the sky the Hubble was looking at was equivalent to about a single grain of sand held at arms length. It shows around 10,000 galaxies, at around 13 billion light-years from Earth. The poster is cool because of how mind-boggling it is to imagine how distant and large these galaxies are. The poster is highly recommended if you are interested in science and the mysteries of the universe!
Maybe last year I looked into purchasing a poster of this image, and prices were a lot higher. As a rank amateur with a telescope, this image really hits home and is impressive. As such, I look at it as a whole, and conceptually, and not with the discriminating eye of a seasoned astrophotographer, being overly critical of clarity, color saturation, etc. As an image of this size, I am pleased that the spiral galaxies look like spirals, there are some bright images to give it some contrast, and even some galaxies appear to display gravitational lensing , or maybe its just wishful thinking. I bought the frame at the same time, my concern that the thickness of the poster might cause it to wrinkle or otherwise not hold up to getting it mounted were unfounded. No problem, and I had to do it more than once, not realizing the glass of the frame had film on both sides that had to be peeled off. Just fantastic.
This came as a glossy print. Photo paper used was very nice. Had a thin white border around the edge, which was a nice touch. Very happy with it. Was able to dry mount it for about $40 at my local framing shop, came out looking really good.
