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
