Hi Seanie..

The captions do not represent the photo's that are
depicted.

I.E:
Photo 1: The Moon via a Sony cyber-shot digital camera held to the eye piece of a 10inch Dob scope.

This is in fact a picture of star trails with a lovely auroral display.

Cheers Roy

Hi Roy, you must be looking at the page from your computer's cache from around 2 hours ago? The captions are all showing fine for me... I regurgitated last year's poll (you have last year's Photo 1 description) and changed details accordingly.
If in doubt, hit the F5 key on your keyboard.

That's right, 15.

I think my Firefox is kicking my shin a bit here, trying to annoy me...
Just finished the radio show now, when I get home I'll check it out (or worst case in the morning).

My apologies, there was a bad link trying to display last year's data in the first of the 2 links in the OP. Fixed now. Previous poll votes are valid as the actual poll is hosted on a 3rd party provider.
