There is no gift more timeless than naming a star after a loved one. The iconic 12" x 16" International Star Registry Parchment certificate is personalized with telescopic coordinates of the the star and the name of the recipient in hand calligraphy for an artistic touch. Your certificate is then framed with a rich, black "suede" matting to bring a stylish touch to any room.


You will also receive a sky chart with the star's location indicated and circled, a handy datacard with the new star name and telescopic coordinates, a booklet about astronomy, and an exclusive letter! Make your package really special by adding a photographic sky image of the star. Your star's location will be digitally on one of a series of photographic illustrations, created by noted astrophotographer Eckhard Slawik and professional artist and photographer Jürgen Müller for International Star Registry and framed to match your certificate.
