Ctein informs me that all of Phil Rosenberg's "Keck Observatory" prints have shipped as of today. If you have not received either your package or a confirming e-mail from the USPS with a tracking number, please contact Ctein at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arrival: please allow two weeks for domestic orders to arrive and a month for international orders to arrive, after you get the USPS tracking number, before asking Ctein to look into the delay.
As for the Keck Observatory Buyers' Contest, I'll be asking entrants to submit up to three 8.5x11" or smaller prints. Unfortunately, we were not yet planning to move house when that contest was announced—you know how quickly things can sometimes go in trying to move from one house to another. Now I have to wait until we complete our move before I can start receiving the submissions, otherwise they risk getting misplaced in the ongoing moving process, which gets into full swing on Monday morning. We hope to be in our new office by Sept. 1st if all goes well, so plan on being asked for your submission at that time.
Mike (and Ctein)

Warren Jones: "The Keck print is just marvelous. Congrats on the new digs Mike. I hope the move goes well for you. The upside to all this, it gives me more time to decide which prints to send in. :-) "
Richard K: "Received mine in the UK a couple of weeks ago, but you might like to be aware that it incurred an extra £18 in customs fees and handling charges on its way into the country. No big deal, but you might want to pre-warn buyers of this. Love the picture though, and your post on frames for your Lincoln memorial print have really left me thinking about how to frame this one!"
Ctein replies: How would such a "pre-warning" even be possible? I ship to at least 20 different countries. I don't know the ins and outs of US customs policies, let alone those of other countries. It's up to buyers to understand that they might get dinged for duties on international purchases. Emphasis on "might." Identical parcels don't get treated identically, even by the same country. Some buyers get nicked, others don't. Glad you like the picture though, and sorry you were one of the ones who got nicked.
