The Hawaiian Starlight Astronomical Images Exhibit (See it here)
Canon's innovative print technology offers state-of-the-art large-format color graphics printing of quality unsurpassed in the industry. Such equipment truly reveals the high resolution potential, color richness, and contrast of the astronomical images captured by CFHT using its 340 megapixels digital camera MegaCam (CEA) and optimized by Edizioni Scientifiche Coelum. When facing a 5 feet by 5 feet print (the adopted size for the exhibit), the viewer is naturally invited to dive into the prints to explore the rich details of the Cosmos, while still appreciating the beauty of the images as a whole.

This selection of the best 15 images produced by CFHT covers a large variety of astronomical objects (discover them and on location in this gallery). Each image comes with an information panel describing its nature, distance, etc. Please contact us if you have are interested in hosting the Hawaiian Starlight exhibit. Shipping costs (from and back to CFHT) are to be handled by the receiving part. Note that this is an indoor only exhibit that covers at least 400 square feet of wall space. CFHT designed a portable framing system allowing the exhibit to be shipped in a compact and light container.

Canon USA has kindly sponsored the Hawaiian Starlight Astronomical Images exhibit by providing its high quality art Canon Graphic Matte Canvas and ink for use on its Graphic Art Canon imagePROGRAF iPF9000 12 pigment ink printer. The images were preliminary optimized for printing on this media and printed by the Archipelago Gallery which now has the prints for sale to the general public.
