The Orgov Radio-Optical Telescope, also known as ROT54 or the Herouni Mirror Radio Telescope, is a radio telescope in Orgov, Armenia. It was built between 1975 and 1985 and operated between 1986 and 1990 before its use was discontinued. It was back in operation until it stopped in 2012. Subsequently, many attempts were made to restore and restart the ROT54. It was registered in 2002 as a historically and culturally important Armenian monument.

The moment I explored this place, I went from one surprise to another. From a complete control room to a bizarre dark room littered with paper on the ceiling and walls. See more of that in the "Hard Work" gallery

Printed on FineArt Baryta, a paper that sets the tone for high color depth, large color range and image sharpness. This special paper gives the artwork a “wow” factor, especially on extremely high density prints and fine gray tones. The use of barium sulphate in the premium inkjet coating provides the typical shine that makes this artwork a real eye-catcher.

Framed with a custom made, high-end frame; QD Black Frame incl. hanging system.
