Chris Lintott Galaxy Collection

The beautiful galaxies in this new collection have been selected by Chris Lintott, a Professor of Astrophysics at Oxford University, author, co-founder of Galaxy Zoo and TV personality. Chris is the lead presenter of the BBC TV program The Sky at Night, having taken over from Sir Patrick Moore.

Having selected some of his favourite galaxies, it is over to me to photograph them from my observatory high in the mountains of Spain.

The wall art comes in both frameless acrylic or framed and backlit. Each art piece comes with a pack containing information on the object, how it was imaged and a free download card for the Galaxy on Glass Ambient music album.

The limited-edition certificate is signed by Professor Lintott.

His research focuses on galaxy evolution, in particular trying to understand how spectacular mergers affect the growth of galaxies, and how, when and why they stop forming stars.

In addition to his Professorship, Chris is involved in a number of popular science projects aimed at bringing astronomy to a wider audience. Chris is the co-founder of Galaxy Zoo, an online crowdsourcing project where members of the public can volunteer their time to assist in classifying galaxies. More than a million have been classified by the public so far.

Chris is the primary presenter of the BBC series The Sky at Night shown in the UK. Chris also co-authored Bang! – The Complete History of the Universe with Patrick Moore and Queen guitarist and astrophysicist Brian May.
