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
