With the closure of the October Astrophotography Competition, it is time to judge the entries. Please view the included images, and select from the poll options which one you would like to see the winner. There is no need to reply to this post, or add comments - peoples views are their own but may seem to sway favour towards a particular photo if too many comments towards a particular photo is made.


You have only 1 Vote, so make it count!

Entry #1

The Eagle Nebula (also known as M16, or NGC 6611 in Serpens. Taken with a 200mm SCT using an F6.3 reducer, and a Meade DSI-C imager. 31 images of 120 seconds each stacked with Maxim DL, slightly processed in Photoshop. Taken May 30th 2006.



Entry #2

M45, The Pleiades (or The Seven Sisters). 23 x 60 second exposures with 20 Dark frames and 20 Bias frames. Taken with Canon 350D using a Williams Optics ZS80 imager attached to 80mm lens, piggybacked on Celestron CG-11. Processed in ImagesPlus 2.5. Taken in November 2005.


Best of Luck!

Both very good.
M45 nebulosity restrained and effective.
Eagle nebula is difficult so
My vote is for no 1. Well done Seanie

Hi astroda1. Don't thank me, thank the people who take the images! They are the ones that do the work, I just manage the competition forum so that they can all be seen with pride and splendour!

The voting procedure is visible at the top of this posts page - you should see 2 clickable options for this months competition, but you only get to select one, then click on "Submit Vote" to cast it.

ive never seen the eagle nebula before!
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. . . .

As this is now December, my guess is that the time for voting on entries has expired for the October competition. I could be wrong though.

It is over, polling closed (and so too the post so that no extra votes can b cast!)

Extremely busy, slightly behind on things here!
