With the closure of the July 2013 Astrophotography Competition, it is time to judge the entries. Please view the images and cast your vote on the Poll included. There is no need to reply to this post, or add comments - people's 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. And thanks again to Scopes & Space Ltd for their sponsorship of the prize for July (a Celestron 2" EP kit in case, see July's competition thread here for details)
