Our speaker at 7:30 PM on 8 January, 2016, will be the ever popular Dr. Jaimie Matthews, who will be talking about Canada’s MOST Telescope Project.
Our First Annual Bill Iden Astrophotography Contest was judged by RASC Vice President Chris Gainor.
First Place: The top photo for Chris was Mike Bradleys’ photo of NGC 6888, the Crescent Nebula. Chris said: “The final product was sharp and showed features clearly inside the nebula.”
Second Place: Brian Kelso’s first (top) photo of the eclipsed moon in the trees. Chris said: “It was an interesting composition with the right light level.”
Third Place: James MacWilliam’s reprocessed image of M31 Andromeda Galaxy. Chris said: “I thought this was a good effort with this image.” I’m having trouble lifting this image from the PDF file that James sent me. As soon as I get it, I’ll add it to the post.
Congratulations to all who took part. I hope that even more people enter our contest next year.
Clear Skies, Charles
