many thanks Seanie,
I'll make great use of the camera, I had considered for a while now upgrading the toucam, but never got around to it, so it'll be very interesting to see what this camera can do.
Many thanks to all who voted for my image. :)
and many thanks to Ktec telescopes for donating the camera for the competition.

Don't thank me Dave, I only run the competition! The public voted, and it was in your (very worthy) favour. :)

many thanks everyone

Stephen, can you give me a day to decide which one I'll go for, the imager in me is saying B&W, the practical side is saying colour.
I'll need 24h to mull it over.
