Description

Armagh Planetarium was established by the seventh director of Armagh Observatory, Dr. Eric Mervyn Lindsay, who, after twenty-five years of effort, secured funding from local councils and the Ministry of Commerce of Northern Ireland in 1965. In the same year Patrick Moore was appointed as Director of the Planetarium to oversee its construction. The planetarium cost £120,000 to build (included in this was £12,000 for the planetarium’s first projector) and was officially opened on 1 May 1968, although it had been open to the public for some months before that. Since then it has undergone many alterations: the main building was extended in 1974 to incorporate the Lindsay Hall of Astronomy, and a dome was created to house a 16″ (400 mm) reflecting telescope for public use, currently the largest public telescope in Ireland. In addition, in 1994 a new exhibition hall, the Eartharium, was added due to increased interest in Earth Science. The Armagh Astropark, which opened in 1994, is a scale model of the solar system and the Universe contained in the grounds of the Armagh Observatory, with scale-sized stainless steel models of the Sun and planets.

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 James Kelly Art watermarks shown on the screen previews.

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 1 - 3 days. International – Standard (from approximately $10) or Tracked and Signed (from approximately $15) typically takes 7 to 10 days to the USA. Standard 50x40cm pictures are kept in stock and usually dispatched within 24 hours (excluding weekends) - all other sizes are printed to order and usually take an extra 24 hours to dispatch. *** As I live out in the country, last postal and courier collection times are quite early, therefore orders placed after 10am 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.

Framing

I don't supply framed prints, but all my prints are in sizes to suit off-the-shelf frames as available from furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea, B&Q, etc. Picture frame size camparison
