July Competition Theme - The Sun (2006) was created by Seanie_Morris

Your target for entry into July's competition will be on The Sun. Use your imagination for this one - it is not exclusive to those with a Coronado PST or solar filtered telescope! ;) Please Note, SOLAR ECLIPSE shots are excluded. The floodgates have been opened!

Closing Date: Monday July 31st

Entries are to be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and should be hosted off-site, and linked to that provider. If in doubt regarding what to do, please read the Rules & Guidelines .

Clear Skies & Good Luck!

We're a little after the half way mark folks, and there has been loads of Sun! Try anything - photography if you got the means, projection to see sunspots, and even a sketch.

Seanie ill enter if you buy me a pst! not fair for people without filters or sunscopes! Baader could sponsor the competition!
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time. . . .

Or those with new PST's with mysterious extra filters and extension tubes sealed with the strongest glues known to man!

Well Matthew, that is why I mentioned about solar projection! Have a look here about the best method of solar projection (with some pictures to help! ;) )

Now there is no excuse!
