Description

Armagh Observatory is a modern astronomical research institute with a rich heritage, based in Armagh, Northern Ireland. Around 25 astronomers are based there, studying stellar astrophysics, the Sun, Solar System astronomy and Earth’s climate. The Observatory is located close to the centre of the city of Armagh, adjacent to the Armagh Planetarium in approximately 14 acres (57,000 m2) of landscaped grounds known as the Armagh Astropark, and was founded in 1789 by Richard Robinson, Archbishop of Armagh. Ernst Julius Öpik (grandfather of Lembit Öpik MP) was based here for over 30 years and among his many contributions to astrophysics he wrote of the dangers of an asteroid impacting on the Earth. There are scale models of the Solar System and the Universe, two sundials and historic telescopes, as well as telescope domes and other outdoor exhibits. The Human Orrery, launched in 2004, is located close to the main Observatory building. The Observatory’s specialist library and archives, and collections of scientific instruments and artefacts associated with the development of modern astronomy, represent one of the leading collections of its kind in the British Isles.

Specification

PRINTS
All prints produced with the highest quality long-life archive inks on 250g heavyweight paper and are supplied rolled in strong 7.5cm (3″) diameter postal tubes for reduced curl and safe transport. The pictures supplied suit standard frame sizes that are available in many furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea.

The black outline is to show the edges of the print and to demonstrate what the print would look like in a frame. The finished prints do NOT have the jskelly.co.uk watermarks shown in the previews on screen.

Shipping

I post pictures all over the world. So, if you have a loved one in far off places, enter their delivery address at checkout and I’ll happily ship to them directly.

Prints are shipped rolled-up in strong, wide postal tubes, ready for framing.

UK – Standard UK shipping usually takes around 2 – 5 days.
International – Standard (from approximately $10) or Tracked and Signed (from approximately $15) typically takes 7 to 10 days to the USA.

The standard size 50x40cm prints are kept in stock ready for shipping but the larger sizes are printed to order and usually require an extra day before shipping.

*** As I live out in the country, last postal and courier collection times are quite early, therefore orders placed after 11am will likely not be shipped until the following working day.

I always do my best to ensure that orders are shipped within 1 or 2 working days.

Frames

I supply one type of frame – plain black with no mount/surround.

For safety reasons, framed pictures will be shipped with a clear plastic face.

Please select the size you want from the list and in the box type the name of the picture to be framed.

Shipping to UK and Ireland Only
